QNet: Ferreira, 3 others held; HC stays further probe in case

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

Former world billiards champion Michael Ferreira and three others were arrested by Police in connection with an FIR registered against them here in the alleged multi-crore rupee involving the multi-level marketing company QNet.

However, in a related development, the four including Ferreira, 78, moved the High and secured an order which stayed further investigation in the case till Monday, police said.



"We received information orally (about the order) to stay further investigations into the case. The stay order is till Monday," Assistant Commissioner of Police, Central Crime Station (CCS), G Jogaiah said.

"Now they (accused) have to show that order in a local and then apply for bail. But, we will file an application opposing this order to enable us to take them into custody for further interrogation," he said.

Earlier, the CCS, a wing of Police, made a breakthrough in a case of cheating which involved QNet and its Indian subsidiary M/s Vihaan Direct Selling India Pvt Ltd, by arresting four directors of Vihaan, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Detective Department) Avinash Mohanty told reporters.

Michael Joseph Ferreira, Malcom N Desai, M V Balaji and Srinivas Rao, all directors and shareholders of Vihaan Direct Selling India Pvt Ltd who were earlier arrested in Mumbai by Maharashtra Police, were brought to the city on PT (production transit) warrants and arrested, the DCP said.

On October 13 last year, a complaint was lodged by one Suman Ghosh, an assistant manager in a private bank here, wherein he stated that he paid Rs 16 lakh (via DD) in the name of Vihaan Direct Selling India Pvt Ltd, on the promise of getting business. But, they did not give him any business despite collecting the amount.
