The Odisha Economic Offences Wing (EOW) plans to question actor Govinda in relation to a Rs 1,000 crore online Ponzi scam probe.
The scam was allegedly perpetrated by the Solar Techno Alliance (STA-Token), operating a pyramid-structured online Ponzi scheme under the guise of crypto investment.
Govinda had endorsed the company's operations in promotional videos, prompting the EOW's interest in him.
The actor's manager, Shashi Sinha, denies involvement, stating Govinda was only present for an event and not implicated in any business or branding activities.
The investigation revealed funds from investors in multiple states were taken as deposits for this scam, conducted under the appearance of multilevel marketing.
