Denying allegations of any wrongdoing, a spokesperson for Biocon Biologics said "All our product approvals are legitimate and backed by science and clinical data. Our bAspart is approved in Europe and many other countries. We follow the due regulatory process for all our product approvals by DCGI. The entire application process in India is online and all meeting minutes are in the public domain. We are co-operating with the investigation agency." - With Inputs from PTI & ET
