On Monday, shares of six Adani group firms out of ten listed entities ended the day in the negative territory amid a volatile trend in the equity markets.
At the close, six of the group firms were in the red territory while four were in the green.
After taking a beating on the bourses, following a report by US-based short seller Hindenburg Research, the group stocks had recovered. However, amid sluggish broader market trends, the group's stocks have declined in the last few trading sessions.
The report had made a litany of allegations, including fraudulent transactions and share-price manipulation, against it.
The group has dismissed the charges as lies, saying it complies with all laws and disclosure requirements.
