On June 14, shares of Adani group companies plunged. However, yesterday (June 15), shares of Adani group companies closed on a mixed note. Thus, the after effects of the news, stating accounts of three Mauritius-based funds that own the port-to-energy conglomerate's stocks were frozen, can still be seen.

So, shares of six Adani group companies, including the flagship Adani Enterprises may be added to the watchlist for sometime.
