She wrote, “I am responsible citizen, who has found herself inadvertently embroiled in a case that has far-reaching implications for the rule of law and the sanctity of our “judicial system”.

Jacqueline wrote a letter to the Special Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) and Police Chief Arora using her professional email address. The actor has attached three news pieces from December of last year, and one of the specialized departments has been ordered to launch a preliminary investigation into the allegation. “A man identifying himself as Sukesh is an accused, sitting behind bars in Mandoli Jail, and threatening her with intimidating tactics in open public domain,” it said.

In order to protect her as a "prosecution witness" in a case under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA), it further stated that a FIR under provisions of the IPC should be filed against him.
