With the news from India that former Ranbaxy CEO Malvinder Singh and his brother Shivinder have been arrested for alleged fraud, I want to offer a few thoughts from my decade of reporting #BottleofLies. (1)
Malvinder Singh was complicit in Ranbaxy's ongoing fraud. He was at the Oct. 14, 2004 boardroom meeting when @D_S_Thakur's explosive PPT (1 page below) alleging global data falsification, was shown to board members. (2)
Ranbaxy's top officials embarked on a cover-up, ordering destruction of PPT + laptop. Company secretary was sent from room and meeting minutes were later forged. The buried PPT (known as Self Assessment Report or SAR) became Ranbaxy's Kryptonite. (3)

Since #BottleOfLies came out on May 14, I've been flooded with questions by readers, listeners, patients: how can they know where their #genericdrugs are made or whether they’re safe. @BrianLehrer @SamSeder @nprfreshair @democracynow [Thread]
No easy way to answer that question. But…I’ve put together a short guide for the worried + curious: How to Investigate Your Own Drugs. @alt_fda @d_s_thakur @blakeleymusic Below info will be up on my website soon [2]
Step 1: Find Out Who Manufactures Your Drug. That info is usually on the dispensing label. You can call the pharmacist to ask; that way, you can request a manufacturer change in advance, if need be. (More on that in a min.) @NCLEXprof @PlumHealthDPC [3]
