On Monday, Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez appeared before the Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing for questioning in connection with Rs 200 crore extortion case for the second time. The case is linked to alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar. 

Chandrasekhar, reportedly aged in his 30s,  is a conman and a native of Bengaluru. According to police officials, he wanted to lead a luxurious life and started duping people at 17.

After starting the forgery from his home turf, he moved to Chennai and, in no time, began duping people in other metro cities. Currently lodged in Delhi's Tihar jail in alleged criminal cases, Chandrasekhar has 15 FIRs registered against him.
