The Delhi High Court (HC) today (July 9,2020) in the ongoing Rs 3,500 croretussle between Japanese Drug Maker and Former Fortis Promoters, Malvinder and Shivinder Singh ordered that no third-party rights may be established with respect to the SRL Diagnostics trademark.

Daiichi has been demandinga Rs 3,500 crore arbitral award, as reported by Singapore'sSupreme Court. It has alleged the Singh Brothers were siphoning off group companies' funds to avoid paying the arbitral award dues. The two brothers are reportedly under investigation by Delhi Police's Economic Offences Division and are being held in Tihar Jail.

Daiichi is also pursuing the sale of Religare and Fortis trademarks as an extension. 

Today (July 9, 2020), the Delhi High Court reported that a firm called Headway Brands Private Limited owns the trademark for SRL Diagnostics. The High Court acknowledged in December 2019 that the trademark had been licensed to Headway Brands.

The holding company of the Singh Brothers enjoys a 99.9 percent stake in Headway Brands, the court reported. HC has ordered that the status quo with respect to Headway Brands' shareholding be retained.

Nevertheless, the Delhi High Court has not set any limits on the trademark 's commercial use. The case will come up for trial on 28th July 2020.

In May, the Supreme Court of Singapore had dismissed the Singh brothers' appeal which sought the quashing of a Singapore High Court order that upheld the ₹2,500-crore arbitration award in favor of Japanese pharma major Daiichi Sankyo.

The Singh brothers are currently present in Tihar Jail in New Delhi, on the account of a complaint filed by Religare Finvest along with the Economic Offences Wing of Delhi Police accusing themof causing wrongful losses of Rs 2,397 Crore.
