On Tuesday, the economic offences wing (EOW) were investigating actor Boman Irani’s son, Danesh’s role in the QNet scam. Reportedly, the police were going over Danesh’s bank account. QNet, a multi-level marketing company, has duped people of more than Rs 425 crore by selling them items with “miraculous properties”.
However, Boman Irani completely denies the allegations. He said in a press statement, “I was informed yesterday that there was an information sent to the members of the media that a certain gentleman has lodged a complaint against my son Danesh Irani and I, for involvement with a company – Qnet. This is a multilevel marketing company that is at the moment is under scrutiny by the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW).”
He further added, “My involvement with the company is merely based on the fact that I have attended a function of Qnet and had been photographed there. My son had worked as an agent like thousands of others when he had passed out of college, during the period of 2007-2008. After which he left for the USA for his MBA.”
“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,” defended Boman.
He said on a concluding note, “Rest assured, me and my family are law abiding citizens of this country.”
