QNet: EOW arrests V-Elite leaders Sandeep Kalra and Hitesh Miglani

Kalra from Delhi and Miglani from Bangalore have had pocketed lakhs of rupees through the MLM scheme and organised several training camps to lure investors. Both were intercepted by immigration authorities as their names were on a look out circular issued by EOW

 

The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Police arrested Sandeep Kalra and Hitesh Miglani, senior independent representative (IR or agents) of controversial multi-level marketing (MLM) company QNet. Both were picked up from Delhi International Airport. Meanwhile, the MLM and its leaders are also booked under the Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisements) Act, 1954 as well for selling plastic and glass products terming them miraculous objects for treating severe diseases like Cancer.
 
Kalra and Miglani were intercepted by immigration authorities at the Indira Gandhi International Airport at Delhi last night, say media reports. Both belong to the ‘Infiniti’ team at QNet and part of V-Elite leader’s team. 
 
The duo, who arrived from Dubai in separate flights, was stopped at the airport as Look Out Circulars (LOC) were issued against them by the EOW probing the case. 
 
The two suspects, who were suspected to have had pocketed lakhs of rupees through the scheme and organised several training camps to lure investors, have been subsequently brought to the metropolis and placed under arrest this evening, police said.
 
The LOCs have been issued against those whose statements have been necessitated in the probe but did not appear before the investigators despite summons.
 
Kalra hails from Delhi while Miglani is from Bangalore, police said adding that this is the first arrest of those against whom LOCs had been issued.
 
The EOW had earlier arrested 15 persons for allegedly duping investors by selling QNet products, including magnetic disks, herbal products and holiday schemes, through allegedly fraudulent means.
 

The EOW has invoked the stringent Maharashtra Protection of Interest of Depositors (MPID) against the company which has denied any wrongdoing on its part.
 
QNet has also been accused of using the banned binary pyramid business model. An FIR in the case was registered in August in 2013. The accused had been charged with cheating and forgery under relevant sections of the Prize, Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978.
 
EOW booked 19 accused including Michael Ferreira, the former world champion of billiards and five companies related with QNet, under the MPID Act. This means all the cases against QNet, Vihaan and all those involved in the MLM scam would be heard before the special MPID Court. Until now, the accused were being investigated for cheating and forgery under the Prize, Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act 1978, and for money laundering by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
 
Gurupreet Singh Anand, a computer consultant from Lokhandawala, Andheri in his first information report (FIR) stated that his wife was duped for Rs30,000 by some people who had introduced themselves as the independent representatives (IRs) of QNet. Anand told the police, “They (IRs) had said that one of the bio-products my wife bought could be used to treat my 12-year-old son's brain-related diseases.”

The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the city police arrested a woman in her early 30s on Thursday for her active involvement in the multi-crore QNet scam. The total number of arrested accused has now reached 47, which includes Billiards champion and Padma Bhushan recipient Michael Ferreira.
In the Rs 1,000-crore scam of Hong Kong-based company QNet, nearly 5 lakh investors across the country were duped. QNet has been accused of using the banned binary pyramid business model for its multi-level marketing schemes to lure investors.

QNet posed as a marketing firm selling bio-discs, watches, herbal products, holiday packages, etc. It also claimed that by using the bio-disc, one could cure cancer and brain diseases, the police said.
Too much baggage
Accused Aditi Mitra was intercepted at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, and subsequently, arrested based on the lookout circular that had been issued against her.

Assistant commissioner of police Arun Jadhav confirmed her arrest said she was sent to police custody till March 23.
Mitra was allegedly trying to flee to Dubai for good. She was carrying eight big bags and two handbags. Of the eight, two contained her belongings; she refused to say what was in the other six, sources said.

Mitra, an independent representative associated with QNet, had been getting hefty commissions in return. She has multiple bank accounts, with one alone having Rs 25 lakh, as EOW officials found, adding that all her bank accounts have been frozen.

Active player
Investigators found that on the instructions of the other accused, Mitra was actively involved in the scam. She had brainwashed victims in order to induce them to invest in the scheme,” said special public prosecutor Pradip Gharat.

A victim, Sewri resident Arpita Majarekar, said, “She would conduct welcome sessions in malls and trap people with her sweet talk.

She had promised me and many others that if we invested in the scheme, we would get double the amount in three years.” Majarekar, who works in a private firm in Andheri, had invested nearly Rs 12.5 lakh in the scheme through Mitra.

She has been booked under relevant sections of the Maharashtra Protection of Interest of Depositors in Financial Establishments Act, Prize, Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, and the Indian Penal Code.

http://zeenews.india.com/news/maharashtra/qnet-case-sc-directs-maharashtra-govt-to-file-latest-probe-report_1924693.html
Mumbai: The Supreme Court on Thursday directed the Maharashtra Government to file the latest status report regarding investigation so far on the anticipatory bail plea of World Billiards champion Michael Ferreira and four others, who are facing charges of money laundering in the multi-crore QNet case.

The next hearing in the matter will take place on September 14.

Besides Ferreira, the others whose anticipatory bail plea were rejected were Malcom Desai, Vanka Srinivas, Maganlal Balaji, all directors of M/s Vihaan Direct Selling (India) Pvt. Ltd, and Suresh Themiri, director of Transview Enterprises.
They are facing charges under Sections 420 (mischief), 468 (forgery), 471 (using forged document knowing it is not genuine) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Justice Mridula Bhatkar of the Bombay High Court, who took on record the statement of public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat that investigations were still on, had in May rejected their anticipatory bail pleas.

Ferreira had started the operations of QNet, a multi-level marketing company, in India via his firm Vihaan Enteprises.

The QNet cheating case began with a complaint by Gurpreet Singh Anand, who raised his voice after losing Rs. 30,000.

According to the police, the money involved has crossed Rs. 1,000 crores in the alleged scam with more than five lakh investors allegedly losing their money in the case against QNet which is being probed by the Economic Offences Wing.

After few days Himanshu called Anuj Jain to come with a CV at a café situated in Nehru Place area on 29 November 2015. Anuj reached there, where he met with Himanshu and his to associates Anita Jaggi and Kanika. Trio told him about the business profile and also assured that this is not a networking marketing company. They demanded Rs 6.5 lakh to be a member of the company. They also said that company has millions of customers. IR of the company is treated as a partner and also got the profit share for each sale.

After receiving the complaint from a group of people, the central crime station is now investigating the scam.

Hyderabad: A new multi-level marketing scam (MLM) has surfaced in Hyderabad with around a 100 victims losing money in the controversial QNet scheme.

Several people have come out alleging that they have lost lakhs in the dubious scheme and has demanded arrest of the managers, who have fled with crores.
After receiving the complaint from a group of people, the central crime station is now investigating the scam. The Singapore-based QNet Private Ltd had already run into trouble with the law in Bengaluru and Mumbai police due to the same scam.

The victims, mostly fresh graduates and college dropouts, alleged that they were lured by some people claiming to be company officials who offered them a high salary and commission to do ‘e-commerce’ for QNet products.

Company officials asked them to pay around Rs 1 lakh as charges for registration, investment and training fee. However, the QNet officials neither provided them any job nor gave back their money even after a year.

After several complaints poured into S.R. Nagar police station cops found out that a QNet office was operating in Ameerpet, where most of the victims had paid their money. An FIR was registered in S.R. Nagar police station against company officials and later it was transferred to CCS.

“A person named Ramesh Kurmetti and his associates run the firm. He and others had been avoiding us for the last one year whenever we asked our money back,” said P. Vishwa Teja, one of the victims from Ameerpet.

The youngsters came to know about the company through Facebook and by word of mouth. “We were told that we will be getting around Rs 30,000 as salary as we add more customers and agents into the scheme. They asked us to get trained and promised that we would be selling their products like Bio Disc, Bio Light etc. However, nothing of that sort has happened so far,” said another victim M. Avinash.

Many people have paid Rs 2 to Rs 3 lakh while some paid Rs 1 lakh. The company officials had promised their commission would be higher according to the investment they put in.

While it is yet to be calculated how much money has been looted by the company officials victims claim that it would be around Rs 5 to Rs 8 crore.
Meanwhile, the police has not made any arrest so far in the case.

“We had registered a case after taking the complaint. Since it was an economic offence with a lot of money involved the case was transferred to CCS,” said S.R. Nagar inspector Md. Waheeduddin.

Bluru QNet agent who earned 50L a yr as commission held
Mumbai: The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) has arrested Ram Singh, an accused in the Rs 1,000 crore QNet case, for earning Rs 50 lakh or more as commission each year from proceeds of the crime.

Singh, a Bengaluru resident, was arrested last week after the imigration authorities at Bangalore airport detained him over a look out circular notice (LOC) issued by the Mumbai police. "We are going through all his bank account details and trying to ascertain the source of money to his account," said DCP Pravin Padwal of the EOW.

Singh's name had cropped up during the initial investigation in 2013 but the police could not locate him then. In January 2015, a police team visited his Bengaluru residence but did not find him there. The house was locked. He is the 19th accused to be arrested in this case so far.

"We are working to arrest all the culprits in this case. A special investigation team has been formed to nab the othe accused invovled," said Dhananjay Kamalakar, joint police commissioner, EOW. Singh, said police sources, has been sending money to his daughter who is studying in Canada. "We have to know his source of income. He has sent a major chunk of money to Canada. We suspect this money was gained from QNet. Moreover, he was looking after the QNet business in Dubai and has been shuttling between Dubai and India. We got his passport number late. Soon after getting it, we issued an LOC notice and he was detained," said an officer.

A special MPIDA court in February this year rejected the anticipatory bail plea of Michael Ferreira (77) winner of the World Amateur Billiards Championship and a Padma Bhushan recipient, and four others, Malcom Desai, Vanka Srinivas, Maganlal Balaji, all directors of M/s Vihaan Direct Selling (India) Pvt Ltd and Suresh Themiri, director Transview Enterprises. They all have approached the high court now in the QNet case.

"They posed as a marketing firm which would sell bio-discs, watches, herbal products, holiday packages, etc. They even claimed that by using the bio-disc, one can cure cancer and brain diseases," cops said. Some money has been transferred to Malayasia, Singapore and Hong Kong, too, cops added.

Mumbai: The city's economic offences wing (EOW) is now looking into allegations that several Bollywood celebrities campaigned for the cheat firm, QNet, through advetisements or by promoting the schemes of the self-proclaimed marketing firm.

Hello Everyone

The company Qnet is celebrating VCon from 3-7 May. As a present,yesterday late night, I posted lot of comments on numerous pics uploaded on Instagram. I also posted on VChief Pathmans account. Unfortunately, they kept deleting my posts and had to ultimately block me. If each one of us, Indians, takes to instagram and starts posting messages like me, then they would have to either block us or abandon their account, which is their money making tool. You can start with Qnetofficial,TheV, Pathmans account, etc with phrases like Pyramid Scheme, Qnetscam, Franchise Fraud, Police arrests, court cases,Cheating, etc. They cannot stop us if we all work as one unit.

Hope we all teach them a lesson and save other fellow Indians.

CM Devendra Fadnavis has assured detailed inquiry into QNet: BJP
Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has promised to make a detailed inquiry of the alleged irregularities by the QNet multilevel marketing company and take action against the offenders, said BJP spokesperson Madhav Bhandari on Saturday. Former union minister P. Chidambaram’s wife was a legal counsellor with the company.

The QNet company, which was earlier known as Goldquest, has cheated 12 lakh people to the tune of thousands of crores of rupees. The court has rejected anticipatory bail to the accused in this case. When the CM was contacted about this, he promised to make a detailed inquiry and take action. If necessary, he said that the CBI’s help would also be taken, said Mr Bhandari.

The party spokesperson demanded that the role of former Union minister P. Chidambaram and his wife needs to be probed in this case. “Mr Chidambaram’s wife was a legal counsellor of the concerned company. Taking note of complaint registered by a lawyer from Chennai, the Central Vigilance Department handed over the case to the CBI. The complaint also has a mention of former Union minister Shashi Tharoor. However, the CBI did not investigate the matter during the tenure of Congress government at the Centre,” he alleged.

In Maharashtra, the wife of Gurpreet Singh Anand had in 2013 filed a complaint of fraud against the company. However, there was not much inquiry during the Congress-NCP regime. But since the court has denied anticipatory bail to other accused, including sportsman Michael Ferreira, the investigation can be expedited. Many sensational things are expected to come out in the investigation as the CM has promised to carry out a detailed probe in the case, said Mr Bhandari.

However, Mr. Vaidya claimed that he was neither sent to the trip nor they returned his money following which he approached the police on April 10. On questioning, the accused confessed that they have also been cheated but they decided to get more members to the company’s fold to recover their amount.

Adding to Hong Kong-based public relations firm Qnet’s woes, the Bombay High Court in a recent order rejected its appeal against an order to freeze its accounts by a Maharashtra Protection of Interest of Depositors (MPID) court.

The appeal in the HC on October 13 was filed by Concept Public Relations India Limited, which acted as a media co-ordinator for Qnet. The latter is being investigated by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) for a financial scam involving ‘chain link multilevel marketing’. According to the police, people were encouraged to pay an amount and join as ‘members’ with the promise of high commissions for getting more such ‘members’ into the organisation. In the process, the appellant had admittedly received more than Rs 45 lakh as service charges. During the course of the investigation, the bank accounts of the appellant were frozen.

The counsel appearing for the company submitted that the company was only providing media and public relation services to Qnet. Being a professional services organisation, the company acted as a media service provider as proposed by Qnet, he contended, adding Concept is providing services to the other reputed organisations also and that the professional charges earned by the company cannot be frozen.

The Special Public Prosecutor told the court that the scam allegedly involving Qnet runs into hundreds of crores of rupees and is being investigated by the EOW, and that the investigating agency had sufficient material to freeze the company’s accounts.

Kumar told the cops they had contacted him around November 2014, pretending to work for an e-commerce company based in Bangalore. "They told me if I agree to get into a venture with them, then I can start earning well within a few months. I met them in a hotel in Connaught Place in Delhi on December 18, 2014. I handed them a demand draft for Rs 4.5 lakh in the name of Vihan Direct Selling India Limited. It was cashed on January 31, 2015. A few days later they stopped all communication," he said.
The case was assigned to the cybercrime cell and after a yearlong investigation the allegations were found to be true. Subsequently, the FIR was lodged under sections 420 (cheating), 409 (criminal breach of trust by banker or agent), 120B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC, sections 3, 4, 5 of prize chit and mone cir schemer act and sections 3, 4, 16 of Haryana protection of interest of deposits Act under sections 420 (cheating), 409 (criminal breach of trust by banker or agent), 120B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC, sections 3, 4, 5 of prize chit and mone cir schemer act, 58-B of RBI ACT and sections 3, 4, 16 of Haryana protection of interest of deposits act, said inspector Naresh Kumar.

Six persons have been arrested for allegedly running a marketing scam through the company Qnet.

According to the police, the company is engaged in a ‘chain link multilevel marketing’ scam. Persons were encouraged to pay Rs. 2,500 and join as ‘members’ with the promise of high commissions for getting more members into the organisation, said the police who received ‘numerous’ complaints. Over 100 people were ‘duped’ into joining, says a police release.

Members could offer ‘packages’ that cost between Rs. 40,000 and Rs. 3.75 lakh, and would get commissions up to 30 per cent for enticing others to avail these packages.

The Central Crime Branch, fraud and misappropriation squad, raided the company’s office at Byappanahalli on March 13 and arrested six persons. A release said Amit Soni (34), Ashok Sharma (33), Rakesh M. (33) – all from Mumbai – Nikunj Kumar (29), Avinash Shah (32) and Ankit Kandel (34) – all from Kolkata – were arrested.

However, a company spokespersons said the charges are ‘baseless’ and the operations – which includes networking – had been ‘misconstrued’ as a Ponzi scheme.

Guys, I am also a victim of this Fraud. @Amit: I also had a similar experience of yours. I know so many people whose familar are suffering bec of this and these guys shamelessly posting pictures with their "Haram Ki Kamai". They will suffer for sure.

Writing blog and talking about this will not help. I seriously looking at recovering my money from these Fraudsters. That includes filing a case against so called "Qnet Upliners" Shipra Neeraj (The mother of all scamsters), Mr. Neeraj Raghunandan (the baap of all scamsters) Prashant, Sharfun, Abbas the list goes too long..

We can also file a complaint with the Bangalore Police (Economic offence Wing). I am planning to start a wass app group so that we can collectively take this up and if required we will file a case.

If anyone interested or has any idea of how shall we go with this or has already filed a complaint can email me at [email protected] We are a group of 5-7 people who have already started a discussion about this.

The special court has rejected anticipatory bail applications of two directors of Vihaan, Suresh Thimiri of Transview as well as Malcolm Desai and Michael Ferreira, the stakeholders of Vihaan that handles QNet's MLM operations in India

The special Maharashtra Protection of Interest of Depositors (MPID) Court on Tuesday rejected anticipatory bail applications of five accused in the multi-crore QNet scam. This includes, Srinivas Rao Vanka and Magaral Veervalli Balaji, both directors of Vihaan Direct selling (India) Pvt Ltd, Suresh Thimiri, director of Transview Enterprises India Pvt Ltd, Malcolm Nozer Desai, who is 20% stakeholder in Vihaan and Michael Joseph Ferreira, former world champion of billiards and 80% stakeholder in Vihaan.
The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Police, which is probing the case, had invoked the stringent MPID Act against controversial multi-level marketing (MLM) company QNet, which has denied any wrongdoing on its part.

Transview Enterprises is an associate company of Vihaan Direct Selling Pvt Ltd that handles QNet's multi-level marketing (MLM) operations in India since 14 April 2012. Vihaan Direct Selling, in which Michael Ferreira, the former world billiards champion, owns 80% stake, is a direct selling agent of QNet and had done large financial transactions with Thimiri's company Transview.

The EOW had booked several accused including the former world champion of billiards and five companies related with QNet, under the MPID Act. This means all the cases against QNet, Vihaan and all those involved in the MLM scam would be heard before the special MPID Court. Until now, the accused were being investigated for cheating and forgery under the Prize, Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act 1978, and for money laundering by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

In February 2014, the ED registered a case under the prevention of money laundering act (PMLA) against QNet, Vihaan Direct Selling, Ferreira and QNet founder Vijay Eswaran and three other independent representatives (IRs) of the MLM operator.
Gurupreet Singh Anand, a computer consultant from Lokhandawala, Andheri in his first information report (FIR) stated that his wife was duped for Rs30,000 by some people who had introduced themselves as the independent representatives (IRs) of QNet. Anand told the police, “They (IRs) had said that one of the bio-products my wife bought could be used to treat my 12-year-old son's brain-related diseases.”

MUMBAI: Investors who lost their money in major scams and multi-level marketing's cheating cases can heave a sigh of relief now. The state government has appointed 49 new competent authorities (CAs) to take decision in as many as 101 cases regisered under the strinent law, The Maharashtra Protection of Interest of Depositors (MPID) Act. This will help to dispose of as much as Rs 10,000 crore of investors that is stuck in over a hundred cheating cases' legal battle.

Earlier, the city economic offences wing (EOW) had only two competent authorities. "CAs will proceed with the procedure of disposal of properties and realisation of money for repayment to the investors. It will expedite the process of recovery and will help the victims who have been cheated to get their money back," said Dhananajay Kamalamakr, joint commissioner of police and EOW chief.

The big cases where these CAs will focus first include the cheating cases incluidng National Spot Exchange Limited (NSEL), QNet, SpeakAsia, fixed deposit scam led by Sheesha lounge owner Mohammed Fasih and the Mumbai District Cooperative Bank. SpeakAsia alone has over 24 lakh investors. The money lost in this case is over Rs 2,276 crore while investors' over Rs 6,000 crore is stuck in the NSEL case.
TOI had on October 11, 2015 reported about that as many as 62 cases under the MPID act were pending in a city court due to non-appointment of a competent authority. While seized properties of the accused in all the above cases await disbursement among the victims, the city police has sent a proposal to the state for several amendments including the appointment of CA for a speedy return of public money, said police sources. More than Rs 10,000 crore public money is stuck in MPID cases in the city alone, they said.

"Earlier, non-appointment of competent authority defeated the objective of the enactment of the MPID Act," said an EOW officer. While an investigating officer probes the criminal part of a case, the civil aspects such as the attachment of properties, sale-realization of properties, and disbursement of sale proceeds to the victims are exclusively in the domain of the competent authority who is a revenue officer of deputy collector rank.

"It is observed that competent authority has been appointed in 23 cases in the city MPID cases earlier, notification of the properties in the official gazette is yet to be published. Hence, it would be better to have CAs with independent portfolio for MPID cases," said a senior IPS officer.

Major cases where the appointment of competent authority will give relief to investors:

· NSEL Rs 6,000 crore
· SpeakAsia Rs 2,276 crore
· QNet Rs 425 crore
· FD scam Rs 325 crore
· Mumbai District Cooperative Bank Rs 119 crore

In a setback to voiceover artist Tarun Ratnani, the Bombay high court turned down his application seeking waiving of trial court order asking him to furnish a bank guarantee of Rs 35 lakh failing which the investigating officer would sell his BMW car and deposit the amount with bank registry as security in the Rs 800 crore QNet scam.

The prosecution’s case is that Ratnani is one of the main accused in the scam and during the course of investigation, it was revealed to the investigation agency that the appellant has purchased the said vehicle by using the proceeds from the aforesaid crime.

Considering this, the police had seized the BMW that belonged to Ratnani; however on his appeal, the special MPID judge issued a direction to release the said vehicle subject to the appellant furnishing bank guarantee of Rs 35 lakh and indemnity bond of the same amount within a month, failing which the investigating officer was directed to sell the said vehicle and to deposit the sale proceeds in the name of registrar of sessions court for an initial period of five years pending the trial.

Ratnani, through his lawyer, had requested the court to give back his car on indemnity bond without a bank guarantee of Rs 35 lakh. He had contended that he had sold his old car and used Rs 4 lakh from the profits earned from QNet investments and the remaining was paid through loans so it cannot be said that the car was bought from money earned from QNet and hence the car should be handed over to him on bond. He also assured the court that if investigating agency comes to the conclusion that the car was bought entirely from the proceeds of the alleged crime then he would reimburse that amount.

However, the division bench of acting chief Justice V. K. Tahilramani and Justice A.S. Gadkari rejected his application and held that the trial court has not committed any mistake in passing the impugned order.

In a nutshell, please tell the people about the consequences of joining MLM schemes (so that if this is a scam, this should stop) with no. of cases registered against these people, with no. of conviction happened against the chargesheeted people in these years and more solid grounds and not just an arrest news by which people get the half picture.

VIJAYAWADA: Yet another multi-level marketing (MLM) company Vihaan Direct Selling Ltd was sealed by police and its representatives were paraded before mediapersons here on Tuesday. Police will soon serve a notice on its promoters -- Vasudeva Reddy and Ch Gangadhar - who are currently in Dubai and alert the Interpol to help nab the duo.

Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, commissioner of police A B Venkateswara Rao said that 134 people in the city have fallen prey to the company. "Vihaan Direct collected Rs 1.16 crore and deposited Rs 65 lakh in the account of Vihaan Direct Selling Ltd, which is based in Mumbai. Another Rs 10 lakh was deposited in the account of VR 1 Training Centre, which is based in Bangalore. Rest of the funds have been misappropriated," he said.

Acting on a complaint from a depositor Prathipathi Lakshmi Ganesh, Krishna Lanka police led by circle inspector S V V S Murthy arrested four representatives of the firm- Gourang Desai, Y Babul Reddy, D Nagaraju and Ch Manikanta -- on June 22 and recovered Rs 15 lakh in cash and four mobile phones.

It was on January 5 this year Mumbai-based Vasudeva Reddy, a notorious MLM agent, opened Vihaan Direct as a franchise of Hong Kong-based Q-Net near Prasanthi Hospital in Labbipet. He also ran a training centre called VR 1. City-lad Desai, who met Vasudeva in Mumbai, was nominated as in-charge of the training centre. Gangadhar, a close aide of Vasudava, was nominated to run the direct selling firm.

Gangadhar recruited Babul, Nagaraju and Manikanta as independent representatives (IRs) to carry out the fraudulent MLM operations. Their modus operandi was typical of a binary tree structure- each IR has to recruit more members. IRs will receive commission based on the number of referrals and sales volume of other IRs in their team.

The police commissioner said that Vijay Eswaran, who runs Q-Net, is the brain behind the MLM firms. "From 2002-08, he ran a firm in Chennai that swindled Rs 1,100 crore. Between 2010-14, he ran another MLM firm with Vasudeva Reddy, which swindled Rs 425 crore from depositors," he added.

QNET multi-level marketing scam busted in Vijayawada - Tv9

Four persons have been held today for their alleged involvement in the multi-level marketing 'Qnet' case, police said.

The four persons, identified as V Bal Reddy, Gautam Desai, Dasari Nagaraju and Cheemakurti Manikanta, were arrested today and Rs 15 lakh, deposited in different bank accounts, were seized from them, district Police Commissioner A

B Venkateswara Rao said.

The accused were nabbed by Economic Offences wing of the Commissionarate and the key person involved in the alleged fraud, Gangadhar from Vijayawada, is absconding and is currently said to be in Dubai, the senior officer said.

The five persons were associated with multi-level international marketing firm Qnet, a company founded by one Vijay Eswaran, a Malaysian citizen based in Hong Kong, in 1998, where the company agents extracted huge money from people by offering them lucrative incentives, he said.

The company also operated in India with other names like 'Qen' and 'Quest, police said.

Eswaran had appointed one Vihan Direct Selling, owned by Gangadhar, as the sole selling company in India, where the firm had assigned some agents to recruit salesmen under the direct selling system.

According to police, the agents had appointed 134 first level salesmen by collecting Rs 1,16,55,000 and another 13,400 second level salesmen were joined by the 134 sales persons.

In the meantime, one of the salesmen suspected company's activities and lodged a complaint with the police and the four accused were arrested after investigations.

Rao said if necessary, a red corner notice will be issued against Gangadhar.

He said Qnet is facing many charges in the country and some of the cases against the company are pending in courts.

A decade back, the company was involved in a Rs 11 crore case of alleged fraud in Chennai. It has also been facing some cases in Mumbai, the officer said.

A Mumbai resident today approached the Economic Offences Wing of police seeking inquiry into QNet, a multi-level marketing company facing allegations of duping investors, being one of the sponsors of onoging International Indian Film Academy Awards, 2015.

The EOW of Mumbai police is probing the Hong Kong-based Qnet for an alleged Rs 425-crore fraud.

Gurpreet Singh Anand, who is one of the original complainants against the firm, contends in the fresh complaint that the "purpose of sponsoring IIFA awards is to further the Qnet scam in India and create an image that it is a respectable brand".

IIFA website lists Qnet as one of the 'official direct selling partners'.

While Singh has demanded probe into "why they (organisers) have appointed this company as sponsor", IIFA officials were unavailable for comment. Its legal cell informed PTI that senior officials were busy in Malaysia where the awards ceremony is taking place.

The EOW has so far arrested 17 persons for allegedly duping investors by selling Qnet products including magnetic disks, herbal products and holiday schemes through allegedly fraudulent means.

It has been accused of using the banned 'binary pyramid business model', and a case has been registered under the Prize, Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act, 1978.

EOW and Moneylife can go to Coffe day shops across the country.. they can find many IRs.. Even Police can access to the company database to find all the IR details.. Why still they are not doing it and ban the company?? Mr Gurpreet, you can do this.. i know.. otherwise we think that your website is just for publicity and making qnet as income source for your business..

If someone do false promises and give false details about any product, it is his mistake but not company.. company cannot control people what they say in direct selling business..

I Think this is just a commonsense.. I think you have it.

One day, you will realize that this business is a sham and that your uplines have been fooling you by conditioning you to think like this. But by then,it would have been too late. You yourself will feel sad that you could not see it from the start. Why wait, when there are others who have suffered like you, telling you from their experience. Please report your situation to the authorities. They have hundreds of similar complaints coming to them. Seek justice for your hard earned money.

Mr Sharma should address questions to the Economic Offences Wing.. unless he thinks that a series of actions by the police, going back over a year, including arrests, have been without substance.

If it is the latter, there is a strong case, for Mr Sharma, as an alert citizen to file a public interest litigation to demand action against the police!

Moneylife has been writing on Qnet, for years. I have personally written about it since 2006 or even earlier. If you think all this is without fact or detail, there is nothing more to say.

If you buy a product of the company, you are a customer, if u r happy with the exclusive range of products, all you need to do it is start referring people. There are no sales or time target whatsoever. However you need to refer at least 2 people to activate your global biz.

The Nirbhaya Documentary - as always, follow the money
Why would somebody spend crores on making a movie defiling the memory of a dead person, to make her killers and rapists look like studs and stars?
 
First, take a look at this clip, of animals being slaughtered for food in India.
 
 
It is likely that the unfortunate girl who died in the attack by the rapists was treated even worse than these animals have been treated.
 
Over the last few days, I have been amongst the most vociferous on social media, objecting to the public airing in India of the Nirbhaya documentary made by my ex-colleague from NDTV, Dibang, and his co-Producer, Leslee Udwin from the UK. Why am I, otherwise an absolute votary of free speech, against this documentary?
 
1) The little I have seen, and the feedback I have got from those who have seen it, leads me to believe that the rapist has been depicted as a braggart out to leave his message to the other hoodlums on the street. One reason for this is that death by hanging in popular Indian movies, lore tends to glorify it as a means of expression against political and colonial repression, and that needs to be corrected. 
 
2) There appears to be no available record as of now of adherence to Indian laws by the two producers. Permissions for social research have been misused into making a commercial documentary. There are also reports of inducements in cash paid out to various people who have appeared in the documentary.
 
3) There is no data available on status of compliance to Indian laws including service tax laws for hiring of vehicles, hotel rooms, equipment, staff and similar expenses, which have run into crores of rupees over a period of two years. At least two press conferences held at the Royal Plaza Hotel in Delhi in the last few days were reported to have been paid for totally in cash.
 
4) The British producer, Leslee Udwin, has openly said that she is totally against capital punishment. The justice delivery system of India, however, has pronounced a death sentence, which is still up on appeal in higher Courts. This documentary then appears to be a clear case of trying to interfere in the delivery of justice in India.
 
5) Dibang, the other producer, has himself had a colourful tenure at New Delhi Television. There may or may not be written complaints of sexual harassment against him, as hinted at by a blog, which has been up for years now, but there is no smoke without fire either. I have worked at NDTV, years ago, and still have friends there and from there.
 
6) And finally, the police have filed a case about outraging the modesty of women, basis their inputs on the said documentary. That says it all.
 
Why would somebody spend crores on making a movie defiling the memory of a dead person, to make her killers and rapists look like studs and stars, is the question I hope to answer in a few days as more details of the money trail come in. For now, fact remains, large amounts have reportedly been spent in cash.

" Esam Mohamed, The Associated Press
Published Thursday, March 5, 2015 8:24AM EST
Last Updated Thursday, March 5, 2015 1:29PM EST
TRIPOLI, Libya -- Libya's state-run oil corporation has declared 11 oil fields in the country non-operational after attacks by suspected Islamic State militants, opting for a force majeure clause that exempts the state from contractual obligations.
The National Oil Corporation blamed authorities in the Libyan-capital of Tripoli, set up by Islamist-backed militias, for failing to protect the oil fields. The statement, issued Wednesday night, says that "theft, looting, sabotage and destruction" of the oil fields have been on the rise despite pleas for the authorities to ensure safety of Libya's oil installations.

According to: http://www.dr.dk/Salg/DRsales/Programmes...

It was produced by "Produced by: Assassin Films for BBC in ass. with DR, SVT, IKON, SFR, RTS, CBC"

So money came from western powers.

I have a feeling that it is Danish Govt project as Leslee Udwin got money from DR.

This is because these two who work for DR in international sales have handled the distribution of the film

the timing is perfectly staged to disrupt Mr Modi from passing critical bills in Parliament.Garner anti-govt publicity and ensure the media laps it up and waste time so Mr Modi cannot pass any critical bills.

This is exactly why people have voted for BJP as this is all that other parties are capable of-stopping Mr Modi and his team from taking the nation forward.

Glad, BBC's documentary on ‘Nirbhaya’ convict has been banned
The reason why it is unforgivable for BBC to highlight the brutal rapist’s version on International Women’s Day, is all there in the Zee News interview with Nirbhaya’s friend who was also the victim and witness to the gory assault
 
Tuesday night, television channels had heated debates on BBC’s film on the rapist’s take on his savage and brutal rape of Nirbhaya, which was scheduled to be telecast on International Women’s Day on 8th March. However, thankfully, the film has been banned to be televised in India.
 
The clips shown to kick up media hype of this film was shocking and degrading to young Nirbhaya, who had valiantly fought the crass rapists and his five friends, along with her friend. She had even given a police statement through her bouts of coughing and vomiting in the hospital bed where she lay critical.
 
TV anchors who were merely doing a ping-pong between panelists completely forgot that Zee News had done a heart wrenching interview of Nirbhaya’s friend, Avnindra Pandey, a few days after the incident occurred. 
 
Here are highlights (excerpts) of the truth of the savage rape as narrated by Nirbhaya’s friend and witness to the Zee News journalist, which could probably be the most heinous sexual assault that the country may have ever registered. (For full interview see this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43uArAZH8Lo)
 
Even an animal has his ways of hunting his prey – he clutches its neck so that the prey is killed without much pain. This act in the bus was far worse – even now I cannot tell you all that Nirbhaya said in the police statement – removing her organs, beating her up, body part by body part, with iron rods. It’s unimaginable that a human being can do this to another human being who is alive. They beat me on my head with an iron rod so I was unconscious for a while in bus – it is only when Nirbhaya narrated to the police, that I knew the depth of savagery
 
Nirbhaya was happy when I met her though she was critical. She could write and told me she is going to bounce back. She had never ever given up on life even then. She was on ventilator when she gave 3-4 pages of her statement to the police. She removed her ventilator and told the lady sub divisional magistrate of the brutality. She was coughing, she was vomiting, and doctors said it was time for her medicines but she said no’. She wanted to tell her story so that he gets severe punishment. She had said her rapist should be burnt to death. However, her excruciating efforts to tell her story went futile as next day SDM said Nirbhaya stated all this under pressure.
 
After we sat in the bus, we saw that all curtains were drawn and the rapist and his gang of five were pretending to be passengers. They had all planned it and first, three of them came and started attacking, then another three joined when they found we were strong. For two to two and a half hours, the bus was moving and although we screamed and shouted for help, no one could hear us.
 
In order to remove all identity, they stripped us off all our clothes and belongings and threw us out of the bus, under the flyover. They wanted to crush us to death but did not manage that. We had no clothes on, I was screaming for help; Nirbhaya was profusely bleeding – two-wheelers, three wheelers, four wheelers were slowing down and then speeding away, not stopping for help.
 
Then, after about 45 minutes two PCR vans came and policemen came one by one but for half an hour or so they were discussing as to which police station it comes under. I was pleading to them to bring an ambulance and take my friend to the hospital but they did not do so – instead all of them were seeing the tamasha. Then one policeman threw a wet seat cover at me and asked me to cover me and my friend.
 
They refused to put my friend in the PCR van so I picked her up and put her in it. The police did not want their hands to be soaked in blood.
 
Instead of rushing us to a good private hospital, the police took us to Safdarjung Public hospital. They dumped us there and went away. I was begging for clothes, asking for someone to remove curtains and cover us but the hospital personnel would say `yes’ and then say nothing is available.
 
Finally, I begged someone to use his mobile and call up my relatives. What can I say to my relative? I told him, I have met with an accident so he should come to Safdarjung…after that treatment started.
 
If she was treated in a good hospital from the beginning, she would probably had been with us today…the decision of the government to provide her a particular treatment or send her to a hospital in Singapore depended on how much pressure it got from the public protests. It is like you don’t give me water when I’m thirsty and then try to give it to me when I am dying…it means you are taking advantage of my death!

A citizen of India reacts to a foreign propaganda painting the common man of India in a bizarre manner...? (supported by a section of media where ethics are simply given up in favour of sensation)

India was never a "Sick society" & "Diseased culture". In fact a common citizen of India has more compassion and humanity than the so called developed nations.
When faced with an almost fatal accident in 2001 with both of my young boys (both are IIT students presently),some passers by stopped an auto rickshaw that took us to hospital and I did not pay a single rupee.
I usually travel in the train and find that indian people most often adjust within a narrow place irrespective of gender ,religion or caste.
My wife is one of the women who serves since last one and half decade in the desert of India,mostly alone,in fact there is culture of respect to women in India,a man usuallys vacates his place in public transport to let a woman sit.
However,an average citizen fears as a class advocate / police both of whom are capable of justifying every unlawful /inhuman act...taking advantage of the overburdened system... (e.g. 300 minutes time is accorded to hear 300 cases in one of the high court of India).
So far as the problem of RAPE is concerned the seeds of hatred against humanity were sown by band of Changez Khan : rape,arson,loot & violence were perpetrated for three days unabated,the evil returns (just like a horror movie) to haunt the daughters of India ............. https://twitter.com/revribhav

We are living in an age wherein the thin line between a corporate entity(present context it is BBC) and un-ethical organisation is fast disappearing. As an outfit any ethics may be defiantly forgotten.. one example: Association of Rajasthan advocates reportedly passed an official resolution that outside judges need not be posted in the state of Rajasthan (India) nor any judge from outside the Rajasthan be transferred in the india's state of Rajasthan...https://twitter.com/revribhav

The BBC, recongizes that the courts, laws, and Kleptocracy of India's Dalit-Mughal Raj recognise and treat rape like any other crime. A sport. It is the occasional media out cry that is the spoil sport.

The criminal mind always finds a justification. Its inbuilt human nature to find justification of one's actions. The mafia boss sleeps at night because he has a justification for his crimes. Hitler killed 6 million and was able to justify his actions to himself.

What the BBC film exposes is the mindset more predominant in some North Indian states that a woman is a man's property. Much more shocking and disgusting than the comments of the rapist are the comments of their lawyers including one who said he would "take my loosely behaved daugther to my farmhouse, pour petrol and burn her alive"

The views of the rapist actually reflect the eve-teaser mindset that I experienced myself in Delhi for many many many years.

What is the eve-teaser mindset? It is a kind of Taliban mindset that women should not expose lower legs, expose fore-arms, expose the female form in jeans.

The eve-teaser mindset in Delhi is only Salwar Kameez is acceptable. A girl wearing anything else is a slut and asking for it.

This mind-set is something Western viewers will be shocked to learn. But they will hopefully be more aware now that if an when they travel to Delhi they should dress only in Salwar Kameez if they treasure their modesty.

This is the truth. The truth hurts. Satyameva Jayate.
