It was so shocking to learn that an ICU head can intentionally do wrong that led to his patient’s death. The ICU is a very sensitive location in a hospital where patient’s relatives anxiously wait for hours to see their dear ones come back to life. Here the doctor has broken all medical ethics and allegedly instructed his team to kill the patient. We all have seen such scenes only in movies but never in real life.

It is important that whoever helped him in this cruel mission should also be equally punished.
