Shares of Adani Group saw a rise for the third consecutive day on Thursday. Earlier, due to a report released by Hindenburg Research, there was a lot of volatility in the shares of the group. Describing the allegations made in the Hindenburg report as wrong, Adani Group had said that the purpose of this report was to harm the FPO brought by the company. However, Adani Group had decided to withdraw the FPO in the interest of investors in view of the volatility in the shares after this report.
On Thursday, the Supreme Court, while hearing the petitions filed on the Adani-Hindenburg case, ordered the market regulator SEBI to investigate these allegations. The Supreme Court said that this investigation should be completed within 2 months and the report of the investigation should be filed. The Supreme Court has also constituted a 6-member committee for the investigation, which also includes KV Kamat and Nandan Nilekani.
