Due to a legal battle between Daiichi Sankyo and the former promoters of Fortis Healthcare, the deal between IHH and Fortis has stalled.
The highest court also fined the Singh brothers in the contempt suit brought against them by the Japanese company.

However, the open offer could not go through due to pending legal proceedings related to the transaction based on a plea filed by Daiichi Sankyo.
