- Jacqueline Fernandez was mobbed by people as she left Delhi’s Patiala House Court on Tuesday.
- The actress was granted bail in a 200 crore extortion case by the Patiala House Court in Delhi.
- Jacqueline is charged in the case that involves alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar.
According to an ANI report, Jacqueline Fernandez was granted bail by the Patiala House Court in New Delhi in the alleged Rs 200 Crore extortion case on 15th November (Tuesday). The actress is entitled to relief, the court ruled, especially because she was not detained in connection with the probe into the alleged money laundering of Rs 200 crore. The Additional Sessions Judge Shailender Malik granted Jacqueline bail on a personal bail bond of Rs 2 Lakh and one surety of the same amount on Tuesday. The same court had previously provided interim relief to actor Vikrant Rona. She was mobbed as the actor left the courtroom in relation to the case involving conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar.
After her bail hearing on Tuesday afternoon, Jacqueline can be seen in a video posted by the news agency ANI leaving the courthouse while being led by her legal counsel. Camerapersons, reporters, and onlookers rush to get near to the actor as she tries to move through the crowd with the assistance of police officers and her lawyers, and the scene quickly devolves into chaos. A few journalists are heard questioning her about the hearing as well.

A few fan pages on social media reposted the video, and other similar videos from the incident were also posted online. One fan responded to this by writing, “This is wrong. I don’t think this is the way to hound someone.” Another person commented, “This has such Rhea Chakraborty vibes. The way she was treated in her case was sad.” Others said she shouldn’t have been treated this way, even though they weren’t fans of the actor.
The actor, who had been repeatedly summoned by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the probe, was named as an accused in the supplementary charge sheet that was filed earlier this year. The prosecution claims that Jacqueline gained financial benefits from Sukesh’s questionable monetary operations and that she maintained her friendship with him while being aware of his unlawful activity.
