The fund house is facing a probe by the capital market regulator SEBI over alleged front-running.

Front-running is illegal as the broker enters the market with prior knowledge of a trade or multiple trades which eventually leads to market manipulation. Apart from this, the broker may carry out this activity with prior insider information about market movements.
