Bonds and shares of Adani-related entities slumped after Hindenburg, an investment research firm that specializes in short-selling, made wide-ranging allegations of purported corporate malpractice following what it said was a two-year investigation into Adani’s companies.

“The maliciously mischievous, unresearched report published by Hindenburg Research on January 24, 2023, has adversely affected the Adani Group, our shareholders and investors, said Jalundhwala.

“The volatility in Indian stock markets created by the report is of great concern and has led to unwanted anguish for Indian citizens.”
