Mumbai: A sessions court on Wednesday said it will hear the anticipatory bail plea of Michael Ferreira in the case of multi-level marketing firm QNet on January 31.
However, the Padma Bhushan recipient has been directed to attend the economic offences wing (EOW) office from January 27 to 30. Ferriera also sought a stay on the lookout notice issued against him stating that he was in Kuala Lumpur for treatment.
The billiards champion has maintained he was falsely implicated in the case. “The applicant was not committed, nor was in charge and was not responsible to the company for the conduct of the business of the company. He is merely a shareholder of the company and was invited by the company, to accept the shareholding. He has no role in the day-to-day functioning of the company,” said Ferreira’s lawyer.
On Tuesday, the investigators issued summons to actor Boman Irani’s son, Danesh. Danesh was associated with QNet, which is facing a cheating case, as an independent representative. “An bank account of Danesh a balance of Rs 25 lakh,” said an officer.
