Reliance Communications, India’s second-largest telecommunications company, saw its shares fall by almost 50% over the last year, and further dropped by nearly 7% last week amid corruption accusations.

Shares of the family-controlled telecommunications group, headed by second-generation Anil Ambani, had been one of the worst performers in India’s stock exchange last year, and had slipped from Rs 800 (€13) to Rs 93 (€1.5).

This fall in value of the flagship company adds more worry for Ambani, who is in the middle of a federal investigation by India’s anti-corruption body. He has been accused of selling mobile phone licenses to companies at a low price, which allegedly cost the Indian government around $39 billion.
