The lawyer added that he and his client are disappointed on receiving no prior communication from the Enforcement Directorate if the media reports are indeed true, considering that Jacqueline has been extremely cooperative in the case. Prashant Patil also maintained that the Jaane Kahaan Se Aayi Hain actress is a victim in this case and has been cheated and conned by Sukesh Chandrashekhar, not having to do anything with the extortion racket.

    The report quoted Jacqueline Fernandez’s lawyer’s statement stating, “Taking the entire prosecution case to be true for the sake of arguments, even then, no case is made out against Jacqueline under the scheme of Prevention of Money Laundering Act or any other Law in force. This is a case of malafide prosecution and my client shall take steps as required under law to protect her dignity and liberty.”

    The report furthermore added that the response of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is now awaited after this statement from Jacqueline Fernandez’s lawyer. Meanwhile, on the work front, Jacqueline will be soon seen in Ram Setu . The movie will have her star alongside Akshay Kumar.
