No Plans To Enact Legislation To Prevent Custodial Torture: Govt Tells In Lok Sabha

The Union Ministry of Home Affairs on Tuesday informed the Lok Sabha that it has no plans to bring a legislation on Custodial Violence. The Minister of State in the Ministry of Home Affairs, G Kishan Reddy, informed the House that the Indian Penal Code provides punishment for such offences and it has no plans to bring in a separate legislation. The clarification comes in response to question solicited by DMK MP Kanimozhi Karunanidhi. He had asked if the Government was considering to bring a legislation to prevent torture of individuals by police and public officials.

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.
