In an interview with Times Of India, Prashant Patil shared that Jacqueline’s legal team “received information about the complaint being filed by the Enforcement Directorate only through media reports.” He claimed that she was cheated and conned into this matter and was a victim of a larger criminal conspiracy.

He said the “fake offence” against her is painful and, “nobody has bothered to read the evidence filed by the ED. The entire evidence reflects that she is innocent.” Earlier, this year Frernandez had moved to Delhi court seeking permission to travel outside the country for 15 days. However, her passport was seized, and she was told to stay in the country.
