Bhushan Steel’s shares melt 20% for 2nd straight day

Shares of Bhushan Steel tanked 20 per cent for the second straight day on Thursday after a special CBI court issued non-bailable warrants against the Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of the company, Neeraj Singal, in the Syndicate Bank bribery case. Later in the day, Singal was arrested.

Bhushan Steel’s stock plummeted 19.99 per cent to Rs 243.70 — its lower circuit limit on the BSE. At the NSE, the scrip plunged 20 per cent to hit its lowest trading permissible limit of the day at Rs 244.
