    Hopefully, she recovers fast and becomes normal at the earliest. The government should bear the medical costs until full treatment and she must be discharged only after total normalcy. The person responsible for attacking should be investigated and punished under court of law . The army and police should be made responsible for attacking unarmed civilians
