Actress Jacqueline Fernandez has reported alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar for intimidating and harassing her while she was incarcerated. She brought the case before Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora, as per the Indian Express report. Additionally, Jacqueline forwarded the letter to the Crime Branch Special Commissioner of Police. To begin a preliminary investigation into the complaint, a specialised unit has been contacted.
Jacqueline wrote to the police chief a few days ago, titled “Systemic failure in prosecution witness protection.” In the letter, she described herself as a responsible citizen who had unintentionally become involved in a case that had significant ramifications for the rule of law and the integrity of our legal system. She stated, “In the midst of a terrifying ordeal of psychological pressure and targeted intimidation campaigns, I am writing to you as a prosecution witness in a case registered with the special cell. While incarcerated in Mandoli Jail, an accused man going by the name Sukesh is threatening her in public by using intimidating techniques.”
Jacqueline Fernandez’s statement:
The actress Jacqueline wrote to the police commissioner pleading with him to step in right away. She claimed that it puts her safety in danger and calls into question the fairness of the legal system. In order to protect Sukesh as a prosecution witness in a case under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA), she urged that an FIR under sections of the IPC be filed against her.
She added, “These acts challenge not just my personal freedoms but also the foundation of our legal system. The integrity and effectiveness of our legal institutions are being jeopardised by the erosion of the fundamental principle of witness protection. To prevent further abuse, it is imperative that all communication channels available to the accused be scrutinised and stringent measures be implemented.”
The Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez filed a request in December of last year with a Delhi court to stop Sukesh from communicating with her via letters, messages, or statements. Jacqueline is a witness in the ?200 crore money laundering and extortion case connected to Sukesh that is being looked into by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW).
