PTI has published a news which indicates that India has ordered an immediate withdrawal of rabies vaccines, manufactured by a Chinese company that allegedly fabricated records, from the market and has also banned its imports, a government official said today.

The Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) has also issued a show cause notice to the Indian company, which imports the vaccine, seeking an explanation why it didn\'t inform the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) that the drugs production has already been stopped by China\'s drug controller.

The DCGI, in its show cause notice, has asked why the license of the company which procures the medicine should not be cancelled as it has violated the law.

The officials at CDSCO are compiling a detailed report on the import and distribution of the vaccine.
