Shares in pharma major Wockhardt were down another 11 per cent, after falling 20 per cent on Thursday after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration imposed an "import alert" on a plant operated by the generic drugmaker. The stock is at the lowest level since August 2012.

An "import alert", effectively a ban, results in detention without physical examination of drugs from firms that have not met so-called good manufacturing practices, according to the FDA website.
Wockhardt had said on Thursday that FDA alert could potentially affect $100 million in revenue on an annualised basis, but said it should be able to restore most of that within 6 to 9 months by shifting production to other facilities.

Wockhardt shares were down nearly 11 percent at 10.45 am.
