Similar events occurred in India as well. A courageous and selfless deed by Heena Tabiyar, a 24-year-old woman from Banswara, Ahmedabad, saved her father's life. Heena gave her father, Mohan Lal, 49, a kidney in a laparoscopic procedure in 2018.
A similar incident occurred last year when Rohini Acharya, the daughter of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, gave her kidney to save her father's life. Lalu Yadav, 74, is ill and has been battling health issues for some time. Acharya, her daughter, who was in her 40s, donated one of her kidneys to him. Several people were moved by Acharya's selfless deed.
