Last Wednesday, Fernandes was questioned for over eight hours along with Pinky Irani. It was Irani who allegedly introduced the actress to Chandrashekhar. Police had earlier said investigations revealed that Chandrashekhar had offered a motorcycle to Fernandes’ agent Prashant on his birthday, but he had refused to take it. Thereafter, Chandrashekhar left the two-wheeler and its keys with Prashant. The vehicle has been confiscated.
Chandrashekhar is currently lodged in a jail located here. He is accused of duping several high profile people including Aditi Singh, wife of Fortis Healthcare promoter Shivinder Mohan Singh. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had on August 17 filed a chargesheet naming Fernandes as an accused in a multi-crore money laundering case involving Chandrashekhar. According to the ED, Fernandes and another Bollywood actress Nora Fatehi had received luxury cars and expensive gifts from Chandrashekhar.(Agency)
