In January, the Hindenburg report which kickstarted a massive fall in Adani group stock prices – alleged that it identified 38 shell entities in Mauritius, either controlled by Vinod Adani or his close associates.

“Many of the Vinod Adani-associated entities have no obvious signs of operations, including no reported employees, no independent addresses or phone numbers and no meaningful online presence,” the report had said.

Since the report was published, the combined market capitalisation of the Adani group has declined by ₹11.81 lakh crore – from ₹21.96 lakh crore on January 24 to ₹10.15 lakh crore today.
