The Economic Offences Wing of the Crime Branch, Kozhikode, which arrested the CEO of Amway India and two of its directors on Monday, had also registered cases against Amway India directors Pahlavi Suresh Shraff and Shabdul Suresh Shraff, who reside in New Delhi, based on a complaint filed on November 1, 2012. As per the complaint, Vishalakshi, a resident of Kunnamangalam near here, had bought Amway products worth `3 lakh and had been asked to sell the products through multi-level marketing. She could not sell the articles, but the money was not returned.
During raids at the company’s godowns, officials seized products worth `1.5 crore from Thrissur, `32 lakh from Kochi, `10.5 lakh from Kozhikode and `22 lakh from Kannur. A press release issued by Amway India Enterprises said neither the company nor its officials were issued any summons to join the investigation. The release also denied that any information was sought in a Wayanad case. However, the company said it would cooperate with the Wayanad police in that case as well.
