NEWTOWN, Pa., Feb. 26, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — KVK Tech, Inc. (“KVK”), announced today that it has resolved all matters involving the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania (EDPA) and the Consumer Protection Branch of the Department of Justice, including US v .

After Research is sentenced and the DPA is entered, the DOJ has agreed to dismiss all charges against the two individual defendants Murty Vepuri and Ashvin Panchal.
