New Delhi: Actor Jacqueline Fernandez has lodged a complaint against Sukesh Chandrashekhar, an alleged conman, alleging that he threatened and harassed from inside a jail. She filed the complaint with Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora, as reported by Indian Express. Jacqueline sent the letter to the Special Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) as well. To start with a preliminary inquiry into the complaint, a specialised unit has been summoned.
Jacqueline Fernandez complaint against Sukesh Chandrashekhar
Jacqueline wrote a letter to the police chief a few days ago titled “Systemic failure in prosecution witness protection.”
“I am 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),” the letter read.
Jacqueline wrote to the police commissioner pleading with him to take prompt action. She said that it puts her safety in danger and compromises the integrity of the justice system. The actor also said 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).
“These actions do not merely impinge upon my individual rights; they strike at the heart of our justice system. The principle of witness protection, which is fundamental to the administration of justice, has been compromised, undermining the credibility and efficacy of our legal institutions. It is imperative that all communication channels available to the accused be scrutinised and stringent measures be implemented to prevent further abuse, (sic)” she added.
Sukesh Chandrashekhar money-laundering case
Jacqueline Fernandez filed a petition in December of last year with a Delhi court, requesting an emergency intervention to stop Sukesh from sending her letters, messages, or statements. She has been named as a witness in the FIR under investigation by the Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing (EOW) in relation to the Rs 200 crore extortion and money-laundering case involving Sukesh. The actor said in the December 17 petition that Sukesh had severely harassed her with threats and other forms of intimidation.
