 Indian gang-rape victim dies in a Singapore hospital 0

A young woman who had been in critical condition since she was raped two weeks ago by a group of men who lured her onto a bus here died early Saturday, an official at the hospital in Singapore that was caring for her said.

The woman, a 23-year-old physiotherapy student whose rape on Dec. 16 had served as a reminder of the dangerous conditions women face in India, “died peacefully,” according to a statement by Kelvin Loh, the chief executive of Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.

“The patient had remained in an extremely critical condition,” the statement said. “She was courageous in fighting for her life for so long against the odds, but the trauma to her body was too severe for her to overcome.”

Revulsion and anger over the rape have galvanized India, where women regularly face sexual harassment and assault, and where neither the police nor the judicial system is seen as adequately protecting them. Angry protesters thronged central Delhi after the attack was made public and assembled in other major cities, demanding better protection from the police and better treatment over all for women. Some protesters and politicians have called for the death penalty for rapists.

Meanwhile, the family of an 18-year-old woman in the northern Indian state of Punjab who committed suicide on Wednesday after being raped last month by two men blamed the police for her death on Friday. Relatives of the woman say she killed herself because the police delayed registering the case or arresting the rapists. If the police “had done their job, she would be alive today,” the woman’s sister said in a phone interview. “They didn’t listen to us; they didn’t act.”

---
We hope the beautiful life's lost here don't go wasted. Hope a change for the better happens in the country. Not any country is prefect, its what you do to make it perfect. Never too late to start, pray and hope from today no girl/woman/child has to go though the trauma. Our condolences and prayers with the family and friends. May their souls rest in peace.

It's not misguided patriotism, it's called being practical and to tell everyone that this happens everywhere. Do you think women aren't objectified overseas? How would you explain the porn industry? Doesn't it objectify women? Those rap songs from America? Ever heard those lyrics? Don't they objectify women? Some women in religious circles have been told to submit to their men? Does that not objectify women? Think outside of the circle for once.

India has to come a long long way in regards to many things. So does the world. Change starts in within your own home. So before you start preaching, see how the men around you treat their women. I am an NRI - hell I wasn't even born in India. But I respect her as much as I respect the country that I live in. I am aware of the problems in both countries. So don't tell me that western countries treat their women like goddesses and respect them. Please. I don't feel safe walking out of my house after 6 at night and I live in Australia. So open your mind and look around before focusing on one aspect. And again don't feel safe and don't like India? Don't come. Planes crash and car accidents happen, but you still travel right? You travel with precaution. Appy the same rule.

What has happened is extremely sad and sick. What we need to do is quit the blame game and start being pro-active. And those who've left India and settled abroad for generations. You are not any better than Indians from India.

I am so ashamed of what people are thinking of India nowadays. India is a place of beauty, peace, and culture. Today, it has all been broken into pieces because of these lunatics walking around India. Thousands of women die due to rape related cases and the Indian government has not stepped up yet. What are they waiting for? Let's bring a change, NOW. And to this brave little girl, may God always keep her by him and may she rest in peace. This is a cruel cruel world. You are now in the safest place there is, heaven <3 We won't ever let you leave our hearts. You'll stay with us forever. We will not let your struggle and pain go to vain. We will fight for you. We will bring a change. We love you, forever and always.

I wanted to add something else to my comment (see above). It's not just the 6 rapists that are the culprits. WE ALSO ARE. We have contributed to all the rapes that have occured all over the world - reported and non-reported. Why you ask? Because we have failed to raise and instil proper values in our sons and daughters. We have failed to teach our sons to respect women, that she has feelings and intelligence and that she is capable of all great things, instead what do we do? We keep her in the kitchen so that she can practice her cooking skills so that she will make a good daughter-in-law and we keep her from a well deserved education so that she will always depend on men to make decisions for her. We have stripped her of her value and worth and made her a puppet. We have told our sons that all a woman is worth for is making babies and satisfying his needs. And we also teach our daughters to call other women barren when she can't have children. We have always given our sons first preference, and our daughters almost always comes last. We try so hard to marry her off to someone who doesn't respect by giving him money.

How our sons grow up and treat women, is up to us as parents. We as humans have failed every victim becasue we haven't brought them up well. Our women have no self respect, because we taught her to be ashamed of her body. We have told her not to tempt men with her dressing (as stated in certain religious books) because it's our fault that we get raped. Women we are our own enemies. We have failed big time. This is also a regular occurence in supposed first world countries. And to those who are ashamed to be Indian, be ashamed not for being an Indian but for being a human and contributing to the problems, and see for yourself the difference as to how your grandmother/mother and grandfather/father treats you as a woman and treats your brother as a man and see how quick your own families are to condemn others. It happens in your own backyard. So quit blaming the country and blame the magnifience that is human.

For better or worse, we wouldnt do this in India. This is a democratic country. You cant behave teh same way as the Satans. That is what differentiates us and them.

India does have death penalty and the cruelty this people exhibited would certainly get them that.

To those commenting saying that India is disgusting and that you never want to come to India, do us all a favour and don't come. It's so easy for you NRI's (I'm one myself) to quickley condemn one society but fail to see that this type of cases also happen around the world. RAPE is a universal problem, it is NOT limited to one country. Just 2 months ago here in Australia, a woman got raped and murdered, a few weeks after that another woman had the same fate. About 20 years ago, a group of 6 barbaric men raped a nurse who was returning home from work - where did all this happen, a so-called first world country. Again I repeat, RAPE.IS.A.UNIVERSAL.PROBLEM. It is due to a few percentage of men all over the world's inability to keep it in their pants!!! Those men are to blame not the society. So don't start blaming India, start blaming the men who let it happen not matter color, race or creed. So before you all start shooting your mouths off, blame the governments that are run by nincompoop men the world over and blame the women who act as an accomplice in not allowing their daughters, wives, sisters, nieces to bring it to the public by talking about honour. So many rapes cases don't get public attention for fear of scrutiny. Blame those men and women. Because it is those exact people that create the society and they can be found everywhere.

WELL SAID!

I could not in my wildest dreams think a human being deserves to die,please do not mistake that in any way.Anyways I hope those scoundrels should get death sentence immediately & the government should take strict actions against rapists & provide the women of this country protection against such future incidents.Comdolensces to her family and RIP sweet girl♥ You will never be forgotten.

It was a calculated (morally and medically wrong) move on the part of Indian govt./ healthcare to shift the victim to singapore hospital in her medical state. When there is multiorgan failure, under no cicumstances it is wise to move the patient. if the govt. was interested in higher medical care for the patient, they could have easily flown doctors from singapore to India. I guess, the motive here was to project to the indian janta that they are dong their best to get care for the victim and avoid a forseen death in the country. Now all they are flashing is 'the mounth elizabeth' hospital name as the place where the death occured. Indian Janta is at peace.

This idiotic fan of srk who posts in bold to get attention^^

Just shut up. We are ashamed of the barbaric act done by those pigs. We are protesting in all cities and towns from North to South and we shall not stop until the government gives the right kind of punishment and comes up with something that ensures the safety of our women. Because, as men, we are also scared that some pervert might rape our own sisters, wives or even mothers.

But who the hell cares if you don't want to come to India. Why the hell do you watch Indian movies, visit Indian sites when you don't like how we treat women? I'm sure there are criminals in whichever hole you're living in. Stop generalizing things and insulting an entire nation in a public forum. Not all men are rapists in India.

You are such an ignorant and idiot person and I hope you are not a woman. No one deserves to die. Whenever she was conscious she was saying that she doesn't want to die. She wanted to fight for her life. Because of you idiots in the society many raped woman take her life because they think that they can not bear the humiliation. so the system continues, the society, the police and the judiciary will not change as long as people like you think it is better the raped woman takes her life because she is worth nothing .... I would like to see you raped and fight for your life ....

Now those cruel bastards who sent her to her death should be tortured slowly & painfully before the entire public & at last when it becomes insufferable they should be hanged.

I'm usually a pacifist person, and I never milited for capital punishment, but in this case, I demand that those pathetic excuses for human beings that did THIS to be sentenced to DEATH immediately!!

This is a very heart breaking story since it first aired on TV, but you cannot do much. The rapists must be punished though, severely. Indian government should now WAKE-UP and realize what has happened. Families should learn, not too send out their daughters out at night. No matter if friends or family, keep your daughters in side, teach your sons too keep their pants zipped and too respect woman. SO thing's like this won't repeat again.

If only Indians in India would know the way international media is right now shaming India for this tragedy...as soon as it is morning in the rest of the world this will make shameful and tragic headlines around the world!

I always wanted to visit India as I have never been there in my life and have always been awed by it and its history and culture...not anymore after getting to know how women are treated there and how many rapes occur there! I would never wanna visit a country where I will have to walk in fear of being raped at every step!

@pizzapasta - i think the poster was taking objection to your use of the word "humiliation". how is saying that the victim was "humiliated" a good thing? she was hurt, traumatized, brutalized, but nothing they could do could ever humiliate her. she is a hero. stop calling rape a humiliation, because that is what adds to the social stigma that caused under-reporting of crimes, and causes the victims to be the ones blamed for something that is not their fault.

===========================================================
i agree about the pain part but humiliation??? why should she be humiliated, it is the sick filthy vermin that are the lowest life forms possible who did this to her, who should be humiliated. let as stop thinking of victims of rape and sexual crimes as having to live with humiliation. on the contrary i think they are brave, courageous women who should be admired. may she rest in peace. and as for the despicable filth that did this to her, i hope there is NO death penalty for them. because then they will be the ones who die in a peaceful humane way, unlike the brutal tortuous agonising death they gave to her. no, they must NOT be hanged. they must go to jail where the other criminals every day shove all sorts of things up them or release them to a mob of women armed with clubs and iron rods and let justice take its course that way. &^#^%$ lowlives, i hope they suffer and die

A life lost....could she have ever imagined this would come upon her that fateful night, that too in such a horrific way. It could have been you or me. A girl with dreams for her future. A human being with an entire life ahead. She had to give her life for us to wake up a little? It is just too sad. Sexual harrassment/eve-teasing is a norm in India...one thing I was fed up with when I was living there. Had to walk the streets in fear and discomfort despite being always fully covered. Still, the eve-teasers wouldn't relent. They are found in EVERY corner. Yes, the govt. can tighten laws and strictly punish the offenders and control the occurrences, and they need to do that immediately, but can they control the intentions and actions of every man on the street corner? No. These men will still be around. It all comes down to what values these men hold inside their mind. How do they see women? The entire value-system has to undergo a change and CHARACTER has to be brought in, and it has to start from educating the child correctly and leading by example. I hope this trait can be WEEDED OUT. Girls do NOT need to cut their life short for this. Shame on you, MEN and your tendencies!!!! If men continue with these traits, no woman will dare trust any man ever. May justice prevail.

There is absolutely no respect for women in India. Neither police nor politicians do anything to stop discourage such crimes and disrespect toward women.

first of all humiliation was not hers. those people who raped her has to be humiliated by now not her. she did not do anything wrong.

secondly, it is never better to die. a human being's life has to be saved no matter what. injuries or no injuries SHE DESERVES TO BE ALIVE.

stop being an ignorant idiot and say things like that. take your head out of the gutter and learn humanity.
..........
First of all please learn to use internet ethics.You talk about learning humanity and then use words like ignorant idiot & gutter.
And secondly I never said that she didn't deserve to live.As a woman living in India I was appalled by this crime & hoped that the people who caused her so much pain would suffer as much as they made her suffer.I prayed every single minute for her life,hoped every treatment would work to lessen her pain,ardently wished that she would remain alive. However no treatment worked for her & the pain was not lessening.The poor girl had her intestines taken out with a metal rod.How do you expect her to live a normal life after that;forget just normal how do you expect her to even live? No treatment would work for her,so would keeping her alive by putting her on a ventilator & inserting a feeding tube through her nose in the confinements of a hospital would really be called living? Where the hell have I said that she deserved to die? The ones who deserve to die are those scoundrels who raped her.But if by living her pain is just worsening & she's lying like a stunted vegetable all the time,then by passing away peacefully her pain would be lessened.And she hasn't died for nothing.She has left us & she will be missed but her gruesome death and rape has exposed the most grotesque of crimes against women in India.
Again please don't think that I mean to say that she deserved to die.SHE DOES NOT,I REPEAT DOES NOT,INFACT NO ONE DESERVES TO DIE!You cannot imagine how much pain you've caused me by thinking that I intentionally believe an innocent woman deserves to die.Here I am trying to object to the sexualization of women by Indians & appalled at the crime of this magnitude & here I am accused of being said that I believe a human being deserves to die without even understanding the meaning of what I said.I'm extremely digusted that anybody can so grossly misinterpret my comment & make me look like a villain against humanity.Again I'm really sorry to anybody who thought that I was trying to be "inhuman"& misinterpreted what I said.

you are so right...this the punishment they should get + they should be beaten by iron rod and should not let them die but keep them alive and trouble them so much that they should beg for death. hanging them is very easy and little punishment in this case.

Reading some comments let me see if I can help. The one regarding her being transferred to Singapore hospital is said to be a political move rather than medical need.

“I just can’t understand why a critically ill patient with infection in blood and body, high grade fever and on the ventilator is being transferred,” said Dr. Samiran Nundy, chairman of the organ transplant and gastro-surgery department of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. “It will take weeks in this case to even look into the possibility of an intestinal transplant so why hurry and take the patient out from a facility which works so well. It seems more of a political move.”

Family hasn't disclosed her name but media organisations have named her Damini, Amanat, Nirbhaya and Braveheart.
The first time he saw a pseudonym flashing on TV, he says he raised the issue with doctors and some police personnel. “I thought the channel in question had got my sister’s name wrong, because they said ‘Damini’s condition is deteriorating’ — they addressed her like that. I was reassured from the first day that our names, my sister’s name would not come out. I was furious,” he says.

I wish capital punishment of Death be imposed on rapists...

The sad part of this incident is nothing is going to change. The Government does not give us hope. Just yesterday a teenage gang rape victim committed suicide due to police apathy and harassment from the rapists' family. This just goes to show the mindset has to change. Just learn to respect woman and of course stringent laws. The rapist's faces should not be covered. We should be aware of these sexual offenders who will be let loose in the public within a short span in prison. We atleast deserve that.

this is truly sad. I prayed for a speedy recovery but what those bastards did was too horrific. I hope they die a slow, painful death. My prayers go out to both the families. This must be so hard on them.

RIP dear one! May your soul rest in peace and hope your death did not go in vain!

This is a shameful time for India! Wake up Indians and do something! End this violence against women in all forms and shapes! What kind of 'progressive' country are you? Bollywood audiences start by demanding the halt of objectification of women in Indian films! End the nasty item numbers like munni, sheila, fevicol se, etc!

If only Indians in India would know the way international media is right now shaming India for this tragedy...as soon as it is morning in the rest of the world this will make shameful and tragic headlines around the world!

I always wanted to visit India as I have never been there in my life and have always been awed by it and its history and culture...not anymore after getting to know how women are treated there and how many rapes occur there! I would never wanna visit a country where I will have to walk in fear of being raped at every step!

This is extremely sad! RIP:-( May she rest in peace & my deepest condolensces to her family.
I'd hoped that atleast she would have survived.But as cruel it may seem, it's better to pass away peacefully than suffer horribly in pain & humiliation for the rest of her life.Now those cruel bastards who sent her to her death should be tortured slowly & painfully before the entire public & at last when it becomes insufferable they should be hanged.
What a tragic way to start my day.Knowing that as a woman living in India I can't travel alone in a public bus without my life & dignity being risked. For shame:-(

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

first of all humiliation was not hers. those people who raped her has to be humiliated by now not her. she did not do anything wrong.

secondly, it is never better to die. a human being's life has to be saved no matter what. injuries or no injuries SHE DESERVES TO BE ALIVE.

stop being an ignorant idiot and say things like that. take your head out of the gutter and learn humanity.

very tragic. RIP and I hope her soul finds peace and her attackers are punished. no woman is safe in India and it is a matter of shame for all of us. I have a feeling she was airlifted to Singapore to avoid the public backlash and not because they were trying to give her the best medical care. these politicians are the worst of all and completely shameless.

This brings immense sadness and utter shame for every Indian and person of Indian origin. She was a survivor...in fact, she was a warrior. She fought for her life until her last breath. If the men that brutally raped her are not chopped in tiny pieces and fed to death, the fairness can never prevail!

very very sad. does anyone know her name? why can't her name be disclosed? everywhere it says "young woman" i hope those rapists get the death penalty

Anonymous's picture

I have no words, but just prayers for these souls who lost their lives that they and most importantly their families find peace. I hope Indians, men, women, children and especially govt officials realize this can't go on, swift and quick legal action is a MUST in such cases so others who even have this thought cross their minds think twice fearing the consequences. Sad thing is most rape cases are probably never registered or reported. In this civilized world, civilized men and women shouldn't stand violations of this kind in this day and age and honestly am appauled at the comments Indian Presidents son is said to have made. Anyways, self protection should be made mandatory for every child and women in this country. Best way to fight this epidemic off, especially if the govt seems to be lagging and rather nonchalant regarding such cases.

She was raped at all levels -
First, by the perverted immoral psycho 6 men.
Second, by the corrupt police.
Third, by the careless government.
Fourth, by the judgemental critical public.

Finally, she is in a happy place - heaven.

Truly tragic! How can one human commit such brutality against another human is beyond tragic actually! May she rest in peace! :(

Those 6 criminals should be castrated, their clothes should be ripped off and they should be left naked on the same Delhi roads where they drove the bus and gang-raped the girl for the public to stone them till they die! Only then anything close to justice will be served!

I am not Indian, never lived in India and will never visit India either because of the way women are treated there...but I would like to say that wake up India and rise up!! Don't let her death go in vain! Change this regressive mindset and patriarchal society that treats women as objects! Please!

May she rest in peace. She was a fighter. I hope her rapists will die in a slow and painful death ... Monsters.

Why Do I have a feeling that she died before taking her to SIngapore because it is after her departure to singapore all these political leaders are giving their sympathetic statement. I believe these guys are trying to cover up the story .. People in India are so crooked specially the ones who pretend to lead the nation. Cant trust!!

It's a very sad day, may her soul rest in peace, may her family get justice and hopefully may India learn from this lost life ... may to stop the corrupt system which fails to protect women.

shocking and very sad. India needs to get serious about domestic matters rather than making thousands of Movies every year. Rape and Bullying are very serious issues.

Rest In Peace...This makes me really very very sad
I pray that their sacrifices don't go wasted and that this would help make the whole world a much safer and better place for women and children!!! My condolences to their loved ones and I, along with millions of others demand a strict and severe punishment for those monsters. It is now about time that all the women and children who've ever been victims of such acts get justice. Only a strict law against sexual crimes and proper implementation of it will prevent such heinous crimes in the future.
I refuse to call those who disrespect women and children as men....they are monsters and they have no place in the society or this planet. Let's get rid of them NOW!!!
And let's all play whatever minor roles we can to raise human beings and not monsters...it all starts from home and teaching people to RESPECT one another is the key!!
