Anand Kumar and the Carnoustie group also share a chartered accountant. Prashant Kumar and Associates of 7/8 Punjabi Bagh Extension, New Delhi, represents some key firms of Kumar as well as the entire Carnoustie group.

Carnoustie's annual report for 2011-12, prepared by Prashant Kumar, lists UK-based Ibonshourne Limited as an associate firm. Ibonshourne is registered in London and its directors include Sameer Gaur, joint managing director of Jaypee Infratech Ltd that built the Yamuna Expressway, and has several real estate projects along the highway. Harish Vaid, company secretary and senior president, corporate affairs, of Jaiprakash Associates Ltd, is a director in Ibonshourne.

One of the firms linked to Tewari and owned by Carnoustie, a Mumbai-headquartered company called Shloka Realtors Private Ltd, is now being probed by Noida authorities for allegedly misrepresenting information to acquire prime land in Noida.

Tewari was a director of Shloka when the land deal was executed in 2011. The allegation against Shloka is that it gave false information to acquire plots in Sadarpur village in Noida, adjacent to the expressway to Greater Noida.

Also being probed on the same charge is Satish Chandra Misra's son Kapil Misra, who owns a 10,870-sq m plot next to Shloka's.

Kapil Misra too has business links with Anand Kumar.

Dia Realtors Pvt Ltd, a company owned by Kumar, had Misra as a partner. Dia had total assets of Rs 78.868 crore at the end of March 2012, Rs 78.816 crore of which was in cash. The company with a paid-up capital of Rs 4.31 crore had total expenses of Rs 1.6 lakh during 2011-12.

Experience Project, another Kumar firm, has invested Rs 1.5 crore in Dia Realtors. Diksha Windsor Computers Private Ltd, also a Kumar firm, bought 8,62,500 shares of Dia and two other firms owned by Kapil Misra Sankalp Advisory Services and Yamunotri Infrastructure and Development Pvt. Ltd for an unspecified amount in 2011.
