Since Hindenburg Research made allegations of accounting fraud against the Adani Group, the situation has changed in a drastic way.
The Adani Group engaged in a brazen stock manipulation and accounting fraud scheme over the course of decades, Hindenburg report alleged. The US short seller also called out the conglomerate’s “substantial debt."
Since its release, the report has sent shockwaves across the Indian stock market and wreaked havoc on the market valuation of Adani Group’s listed companies.
However, the Adani Group has dismissed the charges in the report as lies.
Gautam Adani's personal wealth has also taken a major hit.
