"We questioned Danesh and his statement was recorded," an officer from EOW said. Complainant Gurupreet Singh Anand, who had filed an FIR against the QNet in August last year, had earlier approached Mumbai Police's Economic Offences Wing (EOW) with a two-page complaint giving the details of alleged links of Danesh with the scheme.
In the written complaint, he had 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. Mumbai police has also frozen Danesh's bank account, blocking his Rs 25 lakh.
The EOW has so far arrested nine team leaders of QNet for allegedly duping investors by offering to sell products like magnetic disks, herbal products and holiday schemes through fraudulent practices.
QNet has also been accused of using the banned binary pyramid business model for their multi-level marketing (MLM) schemes to entice investors. The accused have been charged with cheating and forgery under relevant sections of the Prize, Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act 1978.
