India: death for fake drug manufacturers?

I've been going through Newsday for the past half-hour or so (as you might tell by the number of links to their site). Every once in a while, I rediscover how much I like the paper. Anyways ... on to the story ...

A committee has presented a report to India's health minister recommending that those who manufacture fake drugs face the death penalty.
