Shares of InterGlobe Aviation (IndiGo) fell nearly 8 percent in intraday trade on BSE on February 25 after the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has in its preliminary enquiry (PE) found several related-party transactions (RPTs) between InterGlobe Enterprises and IndiGo that were not disclosed as per the required procedure.
"SEBI has found several related-party transactions that were not disclosed to the company’s audit committee and shareholders in their inquiry. The regulator has prepared a report, which has been sent to a committee of internal divisional chiefs for the future course of action," the source close to the development told Moneycontrol.
