The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Mumbai Police Crime Branch has frozen the bank account of actor Boman Irani’s son Danesh, who is currently under the scanner for his alleged connection with the QNet scam.
Earlier this month, the EOW initiated investigation against Danesh after Gurpreet Singh Anand, the complainant in the case, alleged that he was associated with QNet, which allegedly cheated people to the tune of Rs 425 crore.
On Monday, the EOW froze Danesh’s account in a private bank here. “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.

“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,” the officer said. Earlier, Boman Irani had issued a statement saying that all of Danesh’s earnings were “above-board”.
