There is also the allegation that Gagan Dhawan has sent money to Irfan Siddiqui's house several times on behalf of Chetan Babasaar.

These fake companies are in the UAE, the US, England, Mauritius, Barbados, Panna and Nigeria. Routes were made through fake companies created in these countries, and finally the money was parked in Nigeria. ED suspects that Nitin and Chetan Babesa are currently hidden in Nigeria.
