The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), the country’s market regulator, has introduced proposed rules that shift the burden of proof onto the accused in specific instances of insider trading, front running, and comparable infractions. This move comes in response to challenges faced by the watchdog due to the use of encrypted or disappearing communication methods and untraceable funding arrangements, which hinder its ability to effectively investigate and successfully prosecute such cases.
Under the proposed rules, any trading activity displaying an unusual pattern, characterized by a significant alteration in risk or abnormal profits, coinciding with the possession of material non-public information about a security, will be deemed suspicious unless the accused party can provide compelling evidence to refute the allegations.
