Shares of Jet Airways (India) were trading 8 per cent lower on the BSE in the morning deals on Monday after concerns over a potential government-led investigation surfaced, implying derailment of the revival plan of the cash-strapped airline. It was trading in the red for the sixth straight session.

The stock was trading at Rs 116 peice, close to its record low of Rs 115 touched on March 12, 2009 on the BSE, in the intra-day deals in an otherwise firm market.

In the past two months, the market price of Jet Airways has plunged 56 per cent, as compared to a 3 per cent rise in the S&P BSE Sensex.

According to a Business Standard report, Hinduja group, which has expressed interest in buying a stake in Jet Airways, is learnt to have sought an assurance from the union government that the investigation linked to the Naresh Goyal-led airline would be fast-tracked so that the potential of its aviation business is not hampered once it decides to invest.
