Indian Police Use 'Truth Serum' in Child Murders

Police in India have been conducting tests on two men accused in one of the most gruesome cases of serial rape and child murder in the country's history. The tests include administering so-called "narco-analysis" drugs — or, as some put it, "truth serum."

The use of the drugs is one of many controversial aspects of the case, which is also highlighting the plight of thousands of children abducted for labor or sex in India each year.
