Delhi Police today called three people for questioning: Nora Fatehi, brother-in-law Mehboob aka Bobby Khan and Pinky Irani.
Irani is a person who approached Fatehi to get gifts at Chandrashekhar’s direction. She was called to participate in an event at the Chennai studio owned by Chandrashekar’s wife, Lena Maria, last year.
During the event, Fatehi was given a BMW car and event entry fee. Fatehi, during interrogation, said that she refused to accept the gift, however, she said that they should give it to her brother-in-law Mehboob, alias Bobby.
Mehboob, of Moroccan descent, mainly lives in Mumbai and works in the Bollywood industry. He also directed the movie “Leela ek Paheli” in which Sunny Leone played the lead role.
Mehboob recognized Pinky Irani today during interrogation.
Sources say Pinky Irani’s code word is ‘Angel’. She introduces herself to Nora with the codename Angel. EOW officers say she often ignored Chandrashekar as he repeatedly tried to reach her through Irani.
“Today, we phoned Fatehi, Irani and Mehboob and confronted each other. We also recorded their statements separately,” an officer said.
Meanwhile, EOW has also recalled a Ducati superbike, priced at around Rs 80,000 from Prashant, Fernandez’s manager. This bicycle was given to Prashant by Chandrashekhar.
According to sources, Jacqueline was so convinced and influenced by Chandrashekhar that she would call him “the man of her dreams” and was thinking of marrying him.
Nora has never met Chandershekhar. She spoke to him via Whatsapp, twice, the source said.
While speaking to ANI, Ravinder Yadav said, “Jaqueline was even more problematic when she didn’t cut off ties with Sukesh even knowing his criminal predecessor. But Nora disconnected herself when she suspected him. suspected something fishy.”
In today’s question, the conflict was resolved that BMW was kept by Nora’s brother-in-law because Nora refused to accept gifts.
Nora is also likely to become a witness in the Delhi police case but the investigation is still ongoing.
