HYDERABAD: William Scott Pinckney of Amway India has approached the High Court on Thursday with a request to direct the Governments of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to transfer all the matters pending against him and his company in various police stations in the two states to the CB-CID or any other agency for conducting investigation.

Pinckney, CEO of Amway India, was recently arrested on the charge of cheating and other financial frauds.

He was taken into custody by a special police team at Gurgoan, and was shifted to Kurnool on transit warrant. Pinckney figured as the second accused in the case, while the company was named the prime accused. The company is facing cases under the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act at many places in Andhra Pradesh.

The petitioner urged the court to stay all further proceedings with regard to police investigations against him, the company and its employees, distributors and other associates. He also wanted the court to direct the police from taking any coercive steps, including arrest, till disposal of the present petition.

He said the police have been conducting multiple investigations and harassing them. The matter is expected to come up for hearing before the court on Friday.
