Bollywood star Govinda under investigation for INR 1000 crore scam
Bollywood star Govinda is facing potential legal trouble due to his association with a massive INR 1000 crore Online Ponzi Scam, as reported by Indian news agencies. The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Odisha, India, plans to question the veteran actor regarding his involvement with the online scam linked to Solar Techno Alliance (STA-Token), a company operating a pyramid scheme disguised as a crypto investment. Although Govinda is currently neither a suspect nor an accused individual, the EOW has drawn attention to him because he allegedly created promotional videos for the company and attended one of their events in Goa earlier this year. EOW Inspector General J N Pankaj stated that if Govinda's role was limited to endorsing the STAToken brand as per their business agreement, he may become a witness in their case. The company reportedly collected INR 30 crore from around 10,000 individuals in various regions, leading to the arrest of the company's heads, Gurtej Singh Sidhu and Nirod Das, last month.
