According to a report by India Today, the advocate appearing for Jacqueline said that there was no need for the Bollywood actor's custody primarily because the investigation is already complete and the chargesheet has been filed.
On September 26, the court had granted interim bail to the actor on a personal bond of ₹ 50,000, according to the same report.
Earlier the actor was summoned by the court in August after a supplementary charge sheet was filed. Fernandez was named for the first time as an accused in the supplementary charge sheet.
