Police receive bravery awards when they risk their life to protect others. What' s for this doctor and her parents .... Their parents should be given an exgratia of 1 crore,and other govt respects if any miserable things happen . All doctors should be insured by the govt for ₹ one crore for deaths encountered during imparting our duties.
