Karnataka HC Dismisses Petition Seeking NIA Probe Into Sedition Case Against Amulya Leona

The Karnataka High Court rejected a petition filed by advocate H L Vishala Raghu, seeking to transfer the sedition case registered against 19-year-old Amulya Leona, to the National Investigation Agency. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice H P Sandesh said “Looking into the nature of allegations made in the FIR we do not think that this is a case where extraordinary jurisdiction is to be exercised for transferring the case to NIA. In a writ petition in the nature of Public Interest Litigation it is not possible to consider the prayer enjoining the respondents to apply for cancellation of bail of the accused and to conduct disciplinary inquiry against respondent (investigating officer).”

Asia Law Offices advised a major transnational strategic collaboration between its client, UAE-Based Pharmax Pharmaceuticals, and Swiss pharma major Acino Pharmaceuticals.

ALO represented Pharmax in the structuring and closure of entire transaction documents of the significant collaboration.

The collaboration framework extends to licensing, manufacturing, and supply of Acino formulations within the gastroenterology and the cardiovascular space throughout the Middle East and Africa.
