After the snooker champion Michael Ferreira came under the police scanner due to his alleged involvement in the much-controversial QNet scam, the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) are now ‘investigating’ the ‘role’ Danesh Irani, the son of Boman Irani. Reports have it that the cops are now looking into Danesh’s bank account. Gurupreet Singh Anand (who happens to be the complainant) had filed an application with ACP (Additional Commissioner of Police- EOW) asking the police to look at the role of Danesh and his father Boman in the mega scam. For the uninitiated, QNet happens to be a multi-level marketing company (MLM), which had duped more than Rs.425 crores by selling them items with ‘miraculous properties’. Anand also told the police to look into an appearance that Boman did as a part of QNet’s promotions.
Meanwhile, Boman has clarified by issuing a media statement saying that, “I was informed yesterday that there was an information sent to the members of the media that a certain gentleman has lodged a complaint against my son Danesh Irani and I, for involvement with a company – Qnet. This is a multilevel marketing company that is at the moment is under scrutiny by the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW). My involvement with the company is merely based on the fact that I have attended a function of Qnet and had been photographed there.
My son had worked as an agent like thousands of others when he had passed out of college, during the period of 2007-2008. After which he left for the USA for his MBA. His earnings and residuals for his hard earned efforts as a multilevel marketing agent are all taxed and above board. Even though the individual has made this complaint, no authority including the EOW has intimated us for any inquiry. Rest assured, me and my family are law abiding citizens of this country.”
