India's Sterilisation Scandal - 16 Nov 2014
The company at the centre of a probe into why more than a dozen women died after being sterilised in India has denied that the antibiotic tablets it manufactured were contaminated with a chemical compound commonly found in rat poison.

The antibiotics were handed out at a mass sterilisation held a week ago at a government-run family planning camp in the state, one of India's poorest. At least 15 women have died, most of whom had attended the camp.
