The young Delhi student who was gang-raped and beaten and who subsequently died from her injuries was named late last night by her father as Jyoti Singh Pandev.

Badri Singh Pandey, in an interview with a Sunday newspaper, said he wanted the world to know her real name to give rape survivors courage.

The 53-year-old said: "My daughter didn't do anything wrong. She died while protecting herself. I am proud of her. Revealing her name will give courage to other women who have survived these attacks. They will find strength from my daughter."

Indian law prohibits naming a rape victim unless she authorises it or, if she is dead, her family agrees to it.

That's heartbreaking.
