Nitesh contacted a Delhi based Hawala dealer named Inderpal Wadhawan in this regard. Out the 1 crore, Wadhawan allegedly kept 4 lacs as commission and got the equivalent amount of Rs 96 lacs in Dirham transferred to Dubai which was collected by a friend of Nitesh Gahlot and submitted in his account.
