May 12, 2022: Banned from leaving India by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez has sought permission from a Delhi court to travel to Abu Dhabi to attend the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards.
Jacqueline Fernandez, who is being investigated by the ED in the Rs 200-crore extortion case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar, has submitted an application requesting a 15-day grant to travel to Abu Dhabi for 15 days for the event on May 20 and 21.
According to sources, the Sri Lanka-born actor has also sought permission to visit France and Nepal during the trip.
In December last year, Jacqueline Fernandez was stopped by the immigration authorities at the Mumbai International Airport from going outside the country based on a look-out circular (LoC) issued against her by the ED.
Recently, Jacqueline’s assets worth Rs 7.27 crore were attached by the ED. It is alleged that conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar sent gifts worth crores to Jacqueline Fernandez using the money he extorted from a Delhi businessman’s wife.
After the court hears the matter, it is expected that ED will be asked to file a reply to Jacqueline’s request.
