According to the FIR, Stelkon Infratel Pvt Ltd and 12 of its group firms submitted forged bills of entry of imports to Punjab National Bank, Canara Bank, State Bank of Hyderabad, Corporation Bank, Central Bank of India and Axis Bank and remitted money abroad through real time gross settlement (RTGS) and national electronic fund transfer (NEFT).

According to the Registrar of Companies (RoC), Stelkon Infratel was formed in May 2013. Its authorised capital and paid up capital is Rs 1 lakh each, and the firm is involved in legal, accounting, auditing tax consultancy and market research activities.
