Why SEBI asked custodian banks to submit details of Chinese FPIs?

SEBI has asked custodians to submit details of Chinese FPIs.What’s pushing SEBI to do this? Have you ever observed a group of Hyenas hunting? They have a cunning modus operandi. They divide into small groups and instead of stalking a fresh prey, they try to spot a an animal who has already hunted. Then they reach their prey (an animal who is enjoying its hunt). A small group of Hyenas tries to provoke the hunter. It Also tries to take a portion of its prey. Then, when the hunter gets irritated and tries chasing them down, the other group comes, steals and runs away with the hunt. Now compare the hyena with China.
