Recently, we reported that Boman Irani and his son Danesh Irani’s names had come up in connection with the QNet case. For the uninitiated, the father and son duo were apparently involved in a multi-level marketing firm QNet, associated with the Malaysia-based direct selling firm accused of duping investors. Now we hear that the Mumbai Police have issued summons to Irani’s son in connection with the case, demanding that he appear before investigators on Friday for questioning.
Apart from this, the EOW recently froze Danesh’s bank account, which had Rs. 25 lakhs. While a scrutiny of Danesh’s bank account has revealed that about Rs. 40 lakhs had been received by him from QNet in 2013.
This case came to light after Gurupreet Singh Anand, filed an FIR against QNet in August last year, and subsequently approached EOW with a two-page complaint giving details about Danesh’s suspected role in the case. Gurupreet has also alleged that Boman and former world billiards champion Michael Ferreira had participated in the company’s promotional events.
Currently the accused have been charged with cheating and forgery under relevant sections of the Prize, Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978.
