“I don’t know him personally and have never met him. But yes, our company did do some business deals with the company headed by him.

But some money is still due to us,” Dash said during a brief interaction with the media at the special CBI court here today.
“We did business with many companies and this was one of them,” said Dash, making it clear that it was not a special relationship.
