Which is correct: 1) The release got delayed due to allegations of underworld money involved.

2) The release got delayed due to allegations of underworld money involvement.
What are the grammar rules concerning the use of verbs as nouns?
Thanks.

Maybe you are thinking of gerunds. In any case, "involvement" is not a verb in the role of a noun. It is simply a noun. (Related to "involve".)
