Jacqueline Fernandez receives relief in the money laundering case and is permitted to go abroad without court approval

Actress Jacqueline Fernandez, renowned for roles in films like Murder 2, Kick, Race 2, and others, is one of the defendants in a Rs 200 crore money laundering case. Conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar, who has already received a conviction, is the primary suspect in this case. A Delhi court has reportedly decided to change the terms of Jacqueline's bail after she was granted it last year. There are fewer limitations on her travelling abroad. 

The Times of India reported that Jacqueline has obtained significant respite in the money laundering case due to the modification of her bail conditions. The court will allow Jacqueline to leave the country without prior approval if she notifies the court and the Enforce Directorate (ED) three days before her departure. The actress had to travel often throughout the world for professional reasons, and Special Judge Shailendra Malik recognised this in his decision. Jacqueline's prior requirement to obtain permission in advance to travel overseas may have limited her work prospects, the judge noted, even though she had never broken any of her bail conditions. Jacqueline, a Sri Lankan national, has resided in India since 2009. The court noted that she had adhered to all of her bail conditions and had made timely income tax payments.

Jacqueline had previously appealed to the court, arguing that the time-consuming processes required to get court approval for travel regularly cost her money and damaged her image. She also said that as a well-known musician, she frequently took part in films, award presentations, and other events, all of which were crucial to her profession and her source of income. The Roy actress claimed instances in which producers and other key figures in the industry have decided to collaborate with other artists as a result of her drawn-out clearance process. Her submission served as the foundation for the decision to change her limitation. On November 15, 2022, she was granted bail, and the trial for her case started in July. She was named as an accused in the case in the second additional charge sheet that the ED recently submitted. Both Nora Fatehi, an actress and dancer, and Jacqueline have recorded their testimony.
