Gang-rape victim passes away

The 23 year old young woman who was brutally gang-raped and assaulted at Delhi died in Singapore hospital early on Saturday at 445 am. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh stated it was up to "us all to ensure that her death will not have been in vain". The victim had suffered multiple-organ failure after she was raped by six males in a moving bus in Delhi for around 40 minutes on Dec 16 and dumped by a roadside. Authorities in India had shifted her to Singapore. She had been on ventilator support since her rape. Eight specialists were attending to her but couldn't save her life. Severe organ failure after serious injuries to her body and brain was the cause of her death. B.D. Athani, medical superintendent of Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital, informed that the woman had been communicating to her mother and other family members so hope was there that she would somehow survive.
