Adani Group is a responsible corporate citizen and strongly believes in compliance of applicable laws and adheres to prudent corporate governance framework.”
Last month, on June 14, shares of these companies had fallen on reports that the National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) suspended the accounts of three foreign funds — all reportedly based out of the same address — that have over ₹43,000 crore invested in the Adani Group.
An Economic Times report had stated that the market regulator, SEBI, is investigating if the share price of Adani Group companies has been manipulated. The investigation is still ongoing, the report added.
The three accounts in question were Albula Investment Fund, Cresta Fund and APMS Investment Fund. Notably, the accounts were suspended on or before May 31.
According to an Economic Times report, the suspension could be due to insufficient disclosures under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
