The Chinese have a very simple system for deterring corruption. Every once in a while they round up a couple of corrupt officials and execute them. This deter's corruption to manageable levels. And as there are "no appeals" and "no reversals" in the Chinese judiciary all "executions" are carried out without delay. Plus, executed prisoners in China are a vital supply of fresh organs for transplant creating a new avenue for business. India should emulate the Chinese example.

Anonymous, I did not suggest the innocent be punished, only the guilty and after due process. As you say, this could be a stratagem to derail the purchase. This facet will no doubt be investigated.
