Danesh Irani, Boman Irani's son, has been accused of being involved in a 425 crore scam allegedly spearheaded by a multi-level marketing firm QNet, in which he earned a "substantial amount of money", a senior Mumbai police official has said.
Complainant Gurupreet Singh Anand, who had filed an FIR against the QNet in August last year, today approached the probing agency, Mumbai Police's Economic Offences Wing (EOW), with a two-page complaint giving the details of alleged links of Danesh, the son of Bollywood actor Boman Irani, with the scheme.
In the written complaint, he alleged that Danesh promoted and propagated the scheme along with his father Boman, though according to police the actor is not the member in the scheme.
"Boman Irani has no role in the QNet case. His son Danesh earned a substantial amount of money through QNet and we are probing his role," Additional Police Commissioner (EOW) Rajvardhan Sinha told PTI.
Police is now seeking the bank account details of Danesh.
Gurupreet has alleged that Boman Irani and former world billiards champion Michael had participated in the promotional events.
"As the people like Boman and Michael were involved with the QNet, many people got attracted to the scheme. Hence, they should also be prosecuted in the case and this is the reason why I wanted to expose them," Gurupreet told PTI.
He claimed he had shared Danesh Irani's QNet membership details with the investigators and his account had shown that he carried out Rs 18 crore worth transactions and because of which he received substantial amount of commission.
In a statement to TOI, Boman said, "My involvement with the company is merely based on the fact that I have attended a function of Qnet and had been photographed there... Rest assured, me and my family are law abiding citizens of this country."
Boman Irani clarifies on scam involving Son Danesh Irani
Actor Boman Irani Wednesday denied that he and his son Danesh were involved in a Rs.425 crore scam allegedly led by a multi-level marketing firm QNet, saying he only attended a function organised by the company and that his son's earnings during that period were taxed.
"My involvement with the company is merely based on the fact that I have attended a function of QNet and had been photographed there," Boman said in a statement.
Complainant Gurupreet Singh Anand, who had filed an FIR against the QNet last August alleging the involvement of Boman and his son, has now approached the Economic Offences Wing (EOW), of the Mumbai police.
In the complaint he has provided details of alleged links of Danesh, who had worked in the company, with the scheme.
According to reports, the Mumbai police is currently probing Danesh's alleged role.
"My son had worked as an agent like thousands of others during 2007-2008, when he had passed out of college. After that he left for the US for his MBA," said Boman.
"His earnings and residuals for his hard earned efforts as a multi-level marketing agent are all taxed and above board," he added.
"Even though the individual has made this complaint, no authority, including the EOW, has intimated us about any inquiry. Rest assured, me and my family are law abiding citizens of the country," said Boman.
