Adani-Hindenburg verdict by Supreme Court

After the Hindenburg report caused a major dent in the market cap of Adani Group, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the business conglomerate, dismissing the need for an SIT probe in any of the cases pertaining to the financial report.

A Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud ruled that the court does not have the power to enter the regulatory domain of Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in framing delegated legislation, it asked to board to conclude the investigation in pending two cases, preferably in three months.

The verdict, penned by the CJI, said, “Such a power is exercised in extraordinary circumstances when the competent authority portrays a glaring, wilful and deliberate inaction in carrying out the investigation. The threshold for the transfer of investigation has not been demonstrated to exist.”

Reacting to the news of his firm’s victory, Gautam Adani took to Twitter and wrote, “The Hon’ble Supreme Court’s judgement shows that: Truth has prevailed. Satyameva Jayate. I’m grateful for those who stood by us.”
