The past week was a whirlwind for the Adani Group with its stocks showcasing a mixed bag of performances. The most noticeable of the lot was Adani Energy Solutions Limited which struggled with a steep decline of 7.83%.
This performance comes in the wake of a series of allegations and controversies surrounding the Adani Group. The Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) released a report uncovering significant investments in Adani Group's publicly traded stocks through Mauritius-based funds, allegedly linked to the Adani family.
