Conman Sukesh Chandrashekar allegedly gifted Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez’s agent Prashanth a Ducati Scrambler superbike in a bid to win over the actress. The Delhi police has seized the Ducati Scrambler superbike. Ms. Fernandez’s agent has said that although he was forcibly gifted the Ducati, he never rode it. He has also added that he asked Sukesh to take back the superbike.
From the pictures of the seized Ducati Scrambler released on the internet, it appears that the superbike has been ridden. The telltale signs are the rain water splash marks on the mudguard of the motorcycle. However, it remains unclear whether the motorcycle was ridden by Jacqueline Fernandez’s agent or if it was ridden by someone else.
Delhi Special Commissioner of Police, Crime/EoW, Ravindra Yadav, has this to say on the seized Ducati superbike,
He (Jacqueline’s agent Prashant) says it was his birthday & he received message from him (Sukesh Chandrashekhar)that he’s gifting him a bike. He tried to turn it down but he left the bike &its keys with him. Purpose was to win over Jacqueline. Still, as per his statement, he (Prashant) didn’t help him (Sukesh) much. He said that he never rode the Ducati bike. It remained parked and he had repeatedly told him (Sukesh) to take it back. Today, we seized it. The EOW recovered a Ducati bike from Jacqueline Fernandez’s manager Prashant. This bike was given to Prashant by Sukesh Chandrasekhar with the money of fraud. In February 2021, Sukesh gave this bike to Jacqueline’s manager.
The Enforcement Directorate has named Ms. Jacqueline Fernandez as an accused in the multi-crore money laundering scam that’s linked to Sukesh Chandrashekar, who is currently lodged at Tihar jail on charges of multiple offences. During interrogation, Mr. Chandrashekar has reportedly told police officials that he gifted Ms. Fernandez two houses, cars and gifts worth Rs. 10 crore.
Ms. Fernandez has said that she was gifted a Mini Cooper by Mr. Chandrashekar that she later returned. Mr. Chandrashekar has allegedly gifted Jacqueline Fernandez’s brother a BMW luxury car. Another actress – Nora Fatehi – was also interrogated by the Delhi police recently. Ms. Fatehi has allegedly been gifted a BMW 5-Series luxury sedan by Sukesh Chandrashekar.
Many other Bollywood actresses’ names – Nikki Tamboli, Chahatt Khanna and Sophie Singh – have cropped up during the investigation, and some of these actresses are said to have even met Mr. Chandrashekar in Tihar jail. These actresses are also said to have received gifts and cash from Sukesh Chandrashekar.
