Two former vice mayors in east China, convicted of corruption and taking millions of yuan in bribes, were put to death today.

Xu Maiyong, 52, former vice mayor of Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang Province, and Jiang Renjie, former vice mayor of Suzhou, a city in Jiangsu Province, were executed today, Xinhua reported.

Xu was given the death sentence for taking 145 million yuan (US$22.31 million) in bribes, embezzling 53 million yuan and abusing power. 

I think India too should adapt such stringent laws so that the corruption is eradicated and the resultant savings of the exchequer could make us one of the most prosperous Society with equitable distribution of wealth!
