Adani Group stocks witnessed a surge on December 6, with reports suggesting a positive turn of events for the conglomerate. The rally, fueled by reassurances from the US International Development Finance Corp (DFC), comes in response to allegations of corporate fraud made by Hindenburg Research against the group led by Gautam Adani.

The DFC conducted due diligence before extending a $553-million loan for a container terminal in Sri Lanka to Adani Group. A senior US official affirmed that the US government considers the accusations by Hindenburg Research irrelevant, further boosting investor confidence in Adani Group stocks.
