The Delhi-based firm named Siddhi Sales Syndicate was accused of conspiring with certain GCF by the CBI in July 2017 on allegations of selling fake Chinese parts to the ordinance factory. CBI had also lodged an FIR against unknown officials of the ordinance factory under the MoD. Fake parts made in China were reportedly sold as Made in Germany products and were being fitted into the Dhanush guns used by the army.

They were charged with forgery and cheating. Later in 2017, a team of CBI officials had also visited the GCF in Jabalpur to question involved officials and investigate the case.
