Boman Irani’s son Danesh’s bank account freeze
Due to his alleged connection with a multi level marketing firm QNet, the bank account of Danesh Irani has been frozen by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Mumbai Police Crime Branch. Danesh Irani is son of noted actor Boman Irani.
Danesh is under scanner after his alleged involvement in the Rs. 425 crores scam came in light. The EOW began their investigation after a complainant Gurpreet Singh Anand alleged that the firm cheated people of their money which accounted to Rs. 425 crores. Gurpreet had filed a complaint last year in August against the company QNet. Recently he approached the EOW with a two page complaint which detailed the links of Danesh with this company. He wrote that Danesh ‘promoted and propagated the scheme along with his father Boman Irani’.
However, the police later said that Boman had no role in this scam. “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”, said Additional Police Commissioner (EOW) Rajvardhan Sinha.
After this, on Monday, the bank account of Danesh Irani was frozen by EOW. “The account is linked to two fixed deposit accounts and has a total of Rs 28 to 30 lakh. We have frozen the account”, said a senior EOW officer.
The officer also told that after the scrutiny of the account was carried, it was gathered that Danesh received an amount of Rs. 40 lakhs from QNet. However, the police is yet to figure out the services for which Danesh received this sum from the company. Danesh will be shortly summoned by the police for interrogation.
The officer said, “We are yet to confirm what services the money was paid in exchange of. We will soon be issuing a summons to Danesh. When he turns up for questioning, we will ask him about his exact role in QNet and the services he rendered in exchange of the money.”
After the name of Danesh surfaced in the scam, Boman issued a press statement over the entire issue. He said, “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.”
