A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice UU Lalit sentenced former Fortis Healthcare owners Malvinder Singh and Shivinder Singh to six months in jail each.

However, after this decision of the Supreme Court, the process of taking over Fortis from IHH Healthcare has been delayed. In 2018, IHH Healthcare had acquired a 31 per cent stake in Fortis and the company was set to come up with an open offer to buy another 26 per cent stake. The order was passed by the Supreme Court on a plea by Japan’s Daiichi Sankyo against the deal between Fortis Healthcare and IHH Healthcare.
