The court disposed of the ED’s plea and directed Fernandez not to tamper with the evidence and not to interfere in the investigation.
What is the matter related to Jacqueline Fernandez
The ED had issued a lookout circular (LOC) against Fernandez last year in connection with the recovery of Rs 200 crore linked to alleged thug Sukesh Chandrashekhar. Fernandez is a Sri Lankan citizen and has been living in India since 2009.

Raju said that Fernandez may have run away to evade investigation and he has not participated properly in the investigation.
