The telemarketer did not do due diligence of its alleged client and accepted cash for rendering services, thus "engaging in deceitful activity".The exchanges also sought explanation from listed companies in hundreds of cases of rumour-mongering.Inspections were also conducted of books of account, records and other documents pertaining to various market intermediaries such as venture capital funds, portfolio managers, mutual funds and investment advisors including to check compliance with respect to anti-money laundering (AML), combating of financing terrorism (CFT) and KYC norms.Sebi said money laundering is globally recognised as one of the largest threats posed to the financial system of a country, while terrorist financing is another such emerging threat with grave consequences for both the political and economic standing of a jurisdiction.
