Mumbai – Mumbai police during the on going investigation on Speak Asia came to know that Speak Asia surveys were fake. All the surveys were outsourced and copied either from Wikipedia and other online websites.

The EOW of Mumbai police arrested Nayan Khandor, 25, owner of Brand Saloon Inc, a web based firm allegedly responsible for making fake surveys for Speak Asia. His office is located at Dadar. During the search, police confiscated material from his office which clearly indicates the relationship with Speak Asia Online.
EOW Officail said “We are in possession of Khandor’s electronic communication with Speak Asia’s Manoj Sharma, the bills Speak Asia paid for, and the unsent surveys he did for Speak Asia”.
Khandor during the investigation revealed that he was aware that he was creating surveys for Speak Asia and for the same he was paid between Rs 30,000 to Rs 1.5 lakh on each survey and he has done nothing wrong.
Khandor said that all the topics were given to him in advance by Seven Rings India, a Speak Asia concern. Topics such as power saving, scooters, talcum powder, deodorants, washing machines etc and after the approval from the top management of Tusliantek company. The surveys were uploaded to Singapore based server and then it was further sent to panelist in India to respond.
