Hyderabad: QNET, a Malaysia-based company involved in fraudulent activities has been operating for the past 11 years, hoarding crores of rupees from job aspirants, in six metro cities across India. This was revealed by Telangana Financial Frauds Victims Welfare Association (TFFVWA) and National Financial Fraud Victims Welfare Association (NFFVWA). They said that the company had multiple sister companies including Vihaan Direct Selling Pvt Ltd.
Addressing the media on Wednesday, NFFVWA secretary Gurupreet Singh Anand said that there are multiple fraudulent companies that include Vihaan Direct Selling Pvt Ltd, and QNET which are under the umbrella of international fraudulent Malaysia-based company QI.
QI’s managing director was Vijay Eswaran, a former LTTE operative who was arrested by the Interpol on May 16, 2007 in Jakarta, Indonesia. He is wanted by Indian and Sri Lankan agencies.
"Easwaran has been involved in terror-related activities and financially aiding Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, who is wanted by the Indian investigation agencies," Gurupreet Singh said. I have strong evidence that proves Vijay Eswaran was an LTTE operative and funded the LTTE," Gurupreet Singh said.
"The Serious Frauds Investigation Office (SFIO) in its report dated March 5, 2012 declared the activities of QNET scam which were previously being conducted in India by the name of ‘GoldQuest & QNET Vihaan Direct Selling Pvt Ltd, QuestNet and several other fraudulent companies running across the country and world under the Umbrella of QI company as illegal", TFFVWA vice president Ravinder Reddy said.
The first victim of Vihaan Direct Selling Pvt Ltd Gopal Das Ramu who had filed a case of cheating with Mahankali police received a threatening call from a woman stating that she would register cases for sexually abusing her, TFFVWA president Shyam Gopaldas Madanani said.
The TFFWA along with NFFVWA association members on Wednesday filed a petition with Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, requesting the setting up of a Special Investigating Team (SIT) to investigate the fraudulent companies that are still existing in the state with different names and are being operated by Vijay Easwaran.
The association has also met with the senior officials of the Enforcement Directorate and submitted a detailed report with documentary and technical evidence against QI founder Vijay Easwaran.
