Indemnity Bond


I am working in a insurance company, I have one issue, one courier service company has misplaced our parcel which contained original policy documents, and the courier company also agreed its mistake in writing stating that, it is misplaced by its employees only. Now, the our company has to issue another policy document to the concerned, so, now we want to take one indemnity from the courier company for the future rivalrly claim against the lost policy documents. Can any body provide me the draft-indemnity bond in this issue. Please do the needful at the earliest. Plsssss
