Harshad Mehta

Harshad Shantilal Mehta was an Indian stockbroker. His involvement in the 1992 Indian securities scam made him infamous as a market manipulator. He earned the nickname of the ‘Big Bull’ because he was said to have started the run-to-bank lending, which resulted in the rise in the Bombay Exchange’s stock price. He died in 2001 at the age of 47.
