Deputy Commissioner of Police (EOW) Varsha Sharma said Begwani has alleged in his complaint that in August 2010, he was approached by two officials of IL&FS Transportation Networks Ltd and he had invested Rs 1.7 billion in IL&FS Rail Ltd, a special purpose vehicle for Gurgaon Metro project, in order to take its 15 per cent shares.

"However, over a period of time, complainant observed that the company is not performing profitably and funds are being misused," Sharma said.

According to the complaint, in May 2018, Begwani came across copies of demand notices served by the Income Tax Department upon IL&FS Rail Ltd.

"Deputy Commissioner of Income Tax, Gurugram had passed assessment orders concluding that IL&FS Rail Ltd had issued bogus contract orders to Silverpoint Infratech Ltd when in fact no work was executed by this company," the police has claimed.
