Adani share price recovered slightly on Feb 3, but the Adani Group’s troubles are far from over.

PATNA ( — Adani Port shares price (NSE:ADANIPORTS) today recovered some of its losses from the past few days. However, the woes plaguing the Indian conglomerate are hardly over, with the group’s market cap slashed by more than half after the release of the Hinderburg report.

In a new update, Adani’s links with one of the members of a Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) Committee raised questions of conflict of interest.

Posts on social media pointed out that the daughter of lawyer Cyril Shroff, Paridhi Shroff, is the wife of Karan Adani, CEO of Adani Ports and Gautam Adani’s son. In addition, Cyril Shroff is a member of the SEBI’s Committee on Corporate Governance and Insider Trading.

Given the demand for a SEBI and RBI investigation into the allegations against the Adani Group, Shroff’s association with SEBI would serve as a conflict of interest.

A section of Twitter users also wondered if the Shroff connection was why SEBI did not act harshly against the Adani Group, whose share price has fallen dramatically after US-based short-seller Hinderburg Research released a report calling the group “the largest con in corporate history.”

Mahua Moitra called for Shroff to recuse himself from the committee.
