Top seed caught cheating in chess

It was sad to know the news of an indian chess player cheating in the day when Deep Fritz defeated Kramnik showing its superiority over a top GM. I came to know it when I was browsing Susan's blog. I am sure this player's chess career in ruined and FIDE should take strong action against him to demonstrate an example of what can happen to a cheater. I would really look for confessions from that guy so that others learn from his bad feelings. My suggession would be to take off his FIDE rating and ban him for 3 years from any tournament! In case of confessions from him, the ban might be reduced to 2 years. After the banned period, he should be given the provision to start as a fresh chess player though. I want the treatment of the disease not punishment of the patient.
