In return, Wadhawan allegedly “paid kickback of Rs 600 crore” to Kapoor and family members in the form of loan to DoIT Urban Ventures (India) Pvt Ltd, they said.

DoIT Urban Ventures is held by daughters of Kapoor — Roshini, Radha and Rakhee — which are 100 per cent share holders of the company through Mogran Credits Pvt Ltd, it alleged.
