Mumbai: The economic offences wing (EOW) on Tuesday said it was investigating the role of film actor Boman Irani’s son, Danesh, in the QNet scam.
The police said they were going over Danesh’s bank account. The police said QNet, a multi-level marketing company, had duped people of more than Rs 425 crore by selling them items with “miraculous properties”.
The bank accounts of QNet, its independent representatives and associates, collectively holding a balance of Rs 110 crore, stand frozen.
Gurupreet Singh Anand, the complainant, filed an application with additional commissioner of police (EOW) Rajvardhan Sinha asking the police to look at the role of Danesh and his father.
“According to documents found, Danesh has earned substantial amount of money,” Sinha said. “We are investigating his role. His father has no role in this.”Anand said last year Boman had attended a promotional programme of QNet at a city mall.
QNet spokesperson Ajay Chanam said: “Irani came to the programme as a guest. Danesh is our independent representative.”
