“SEBI is investigating some Adani Group firms with regard to compliance with SEBI Laws. Additional, the Directorate of Income Intelligence (DRI) is investigating sure entities belonging to the Adani Group,” Mr Chaudhary stated.
Shares of firms managed by billionaire Gautam Adani final month recorded their biggest-ever declines within the week ending June 18, after newspaper Financial Instances reported the accounts of three Mauritius-based international buyers in Mr Adani firms had been frozen.
Shares within the six Adani firms have fallen between 12.9%-44.9% within the 5 weeks after the Financial Instances report.
The shares have cumulatively misplaced over $37.6 billion in simply over a month after the Financial Instances report, even after Mr Adani rejected the article as “blatantly faulty.”
