New Delhi: Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez registered a complaint against jailed conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar for harassing and threatening her from inside a prison.
She filed the case with Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora along with a letter to the Special Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch).
A special unit of Delhi police will initiate an inquiry on her complaint.
In her letter, Jacqueline said, “I am a responsible citizen, who has found herself inadvertently embroiled in a case that has far-reaching implications for the rule of law and the sanctity of our judicial system. As a prosecution witness in a case registered by the special cell, I write to you amidst a harrowing ordeal of psychological pressure and targeted intimidation campaigns. A man identifying himself as Sukesh is an accused, sitting behind bars in Mandoli Jail, and threatening her with intimidating tactics in open public domain. (sic)”
She urged that an FIR under IPC sections should be registered against Sukesh to ensure her protection as a prosecution witness in a case under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).
“It is imperative that all communication channels available to the accused be scrutinised and stringent measures be implemented to prevent further abuse, (sic)” she said.
In December last year, Jacqueline moved a Delhi court to seek directions to restrain Sukesh from sending letters, messages, or statements to her. She is a witness in the FIR being investigated by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) concerning the Rs 200 crore money laundering and extortion case linked to Sukesh.
