In another development, Bloomberg quint reported that Securities Appellate Tribunal (SAT) has rejected an appeal filed by Gautam Thapar, Avantha Holdings and former officials of CG Power & Industrial Solutions Ltd. against an order by SEBI, that barred them from accessing the capital markets.
The tribunal rejected the appeal as it "found no merit" in it. It also directed the appellants to approach the Securities and Exchange Board of India to obtain all documents required by them to defend their case.
