Proud to be Indian, says Michael Ferreira
New Delhi: Former world billiards champion Michael Ferreira on Monday presented himself to the EOW of Mumbai police in connection with the investigation into a complaint relating to direct selling company QNET.
Talking to media after the meeting EOW officials, Mr Ferreira said he is here to fully cooperate with the investigating agency. “I have high regards for Mumbai police and the Indian judiciary,” he said.
Asked by a journalist if he applied for an NRI status, he said “Why should I? I am proud to be an Indian. I have served this country for more than fifty years and there is no question of me leaving this country.”
He also rubbished the allegation that he was flying between Dubai and Malaysia and said: “I had to go only to Malaysia for medical treatment.”
Mr. Ferreira also dismissed the insinuation that he was trying to evade the law and said: “I came back to India the moment doctors cleared my trip.
Therefore, there is no question of me not coming to answer the investigators.”
“Our lawyers have already informed the authorities about my medical treatment in Malaysia,” he affirmed.
