vigilance is the price of liberty
Stamp paper racket kingpin X alias Y (names
removed -- V.M.) was brought to Victoria Hospital, Bangalore, on December 22,
2003 for narco-analytical test and routine checkup amid high security.
Narco-analysis involves injecting a person with a carefully regulated dose of
anesthetic sodium pentothal, also known as truth serum. Under the influence of
anesthetic, the person is lulled into a state of semi-stupor and, when
questioned under this condition, usually reveals the truth.

I suppose that information obtained by using the mentioned "narco-analytical"
method, through a procedure that observes, during a "routine checkup", the "dignity
of the individual" (see below the Constitution), will also lead to more exact
stamp catalogues data...
Just FYI, cited from the Preamble of the Constitution of India:
"WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a _1[SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC] and to secure to all its citizens:
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the _2[unity and integrity of the Nation];
This information is downloaded from the website of Ministry of Law and Justice (Legislative Department).
Which reminds me the methods used by other sovereign socialist secular democratic republics from a not so distant past.
