The FIR against Malani and others was lodged after he complained to the SEBI that Quick Heal Technologies did not disclose its shareholding details and he and his family members were not shown as shareholders despite being allotted shares of Quick Heal in 2002.

On the same day, following media reports, the company clarified that it had not received any amount towards share application money or subscription of shares from Malani and his family in 2000. The company said it had never allotted any share to the Malanis at any point.

The case is being investigated by Inspector S S Kale .
