Meanwhile, condemning the whole issue, Delhi Medical Association has issued a statement. "Common man has the impression of "Noble profession" as a free service. Add to this the irresistible urge of politicians and media to exploit the situation. It is very easy to blame the Doctors and earn the sympathy of the grieving relatives. In Dr. Archana Sharma's case too, it was done."
