Several social media users are sharing a photo, purportedly of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi with the chief of Hindenburg Research, Nathan Anderson. The claim comes close on the heels of a report by Hindenburg Research, accusing the Adani Group of “brazen stock manipulation and accounting fraud”.
Newschecker first looked up the Hindenburg Research’s website, where its bio stated that the company, “founded by Nate Anderson, CFA, CAIA, specialises in forensic financial research”.
We then ran a reverse image search, which led us to this NDTV report, dated August 23, 2018, titled ”Rahul Gandhi Meets German Minister, Discusses Kerala Floods”. According to the article, then Congress President Rahul Gandhi met Germany’s Minister of State at the Federal Foreign Office Niels Annen and discussed politics, floods in Kerala, GST and jobs. “Mr Gandhi visited Germany as a part of his diaspora outreach programme ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections,” read the article, attaching a tweet by Annen.
Man in the 2018 photo with Rahul Gandhi is German politician Niels Annen and not the chief of Hindenburg Research, Nate Anderson.
