Supreme Court’s judgment into Adani-Hidenburg issue

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court declined to transfer the investigation into allegations of stock price manipulation by the Indian corporate giant to a special investigation team or the CBI. The court emphasized that market regulator SEBI was conducting a “comprehensive investigation,” and its conduct “inspires confidence.”

Highlighting the limited power of the court to enter the regulatory domain of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in framing delegated legislation, the apex court directed SEBI to promptly conclude the two pending investigations, preferably within three months.

A bench led by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud said that reliance on newspaper articles or reports by third-party organizations like the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) to question a comprehensive investigation by a specialized regulator does not inspire confidence.

The bench, also comprising Justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra, acknowledged that SEBI has concluded 22 out of the 24 investigations into allegations against the Adani Group.
