On Tuesday news broke out that actor Boman Irani's son Danesh was allegedly among the list of suspects involved in Rs.425 crore scam, through which he earned a "substantial amount of money." Last year in August a complaint was filed by Gurumeet Singh Anand against QNet, following which Mumbai Police's Economic Offences Wing probed into the matter and Danesh's name surfaced.
Following this, an upset Boman sent out an official letter clarifying things on the issue and stated that his son is innocent. His letter read thus -
"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).
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 if 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. Rest assured, me and my family are law abiding citizens of this country."
