“The six-month-long investigation based on inputs from intelligence agencies looked at money from the FIF flowing into India via Dubai. Initial interrogation of one of the arrested accused, a native of Mewat, suggests money was being distributed there. The amount is not known since the interrogation has just begun,” the senior agency official said on the condition of anonymity.
