The documents from the Registrar of Companies (RoC) in United Kingdom confirms the business relationship of Rahul Gandhi and US-citizen Ulrik McKnight, who incidentally is the son-in-law of Goa Congress leader and former Minister of State of the Ministry of External Affairs, Eduardo Faleiro.

The IndianExpose team decide to investigate Ulrik McKnight. Our investigations have revealed some shocking details that opens a Pandora’s box into an intricate web of companies that could have been vehicles for kickbacks from defence procurement and spare parts deals.

Let me explain this more in detail:

The Direction des Constructions Navales Services (DCNS) France – one of Europe’s leading shipbuilders who is the manufacturer of the Scorpene submarines announced a deal with Flash Forge India Private Limited in June 2011 to supply critical parts as part of a Rs 20,000 crore (USD 4.5 billion) deal to supply six submarines in India.

Ulrik McKnight is appointed as a Director of Optimal Armour Limited (OAL) on June 6, 2012. In his company form, he states that his nationality is US citizen and that he resides there.

Interestingly and intriguingly around the same time, Indian national Gautam Makker and Sunil Menon who are Directors of Flash Forge India Private Limited are also appointed as Directors in Optimal Armour and Composite Resin Development Limited.

On March 23, 2012, Flash Forge India Private Limited acquires OAL, McKnight comes on board as Director on June 6, 2012.

GoaChronicle questions:

1. Ulrik McKnight is Optimal Armour Limited is a US-citizen but in Composite Resin Development Limited he is a Swedish national.

2. Ulrik McKnight is a Director on BackOps Limited in UK with Rahul Gandhi and owns 35 per cent of shares. In India BackOps Pvt Limited which was started in 2002, he is also a Director even though he is US-citizen and reportedly no such intimation ever given to Registrar of Companies.

3. BackOps Pvt Limited today has Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Manoj Muttu as its Directors.

4. DCNS France ties up with Flash Forge India. Flash Forge India acquires majority stake in companies in which strategically Ulrick McKnight is a Director.

5. If you look at the Audited performances of OAL and CRDL it brings up a question on the logic used by Flash Forge India Limited to acquire major stakes in these companies with average performances.

IndianExpose demands that the Indian government inquires into this curious case of Ulrik McKnight, it will find it tentacles reaching to the doors of Rahul Gandhi.
