Rape and how societies react

India gang rape victim dies in Singapore hospital

Posted 2012/12/28 at 5:09 pm EST

SINGAPORE, Dec. 28, 2012 (Reuters) — The Indian gang-rape victim whose assault in New Delhi triggered nationwide protests has died, the Singapore hospital treating her said on Saturday.

"We are very sad to report that the patient passed away peacefully at 4.45 a.m. on Dec 29, 2012 (11:45 a.m. E Friday). Her family and officials from the High Commission of India were by her side," Mount Elizabeth Hospital Chief Executive Officer Kelvin Loh said in a statement.

The 23-year-old medical student, who was severely beaten, raped for almost an hour and thrown out of a moving bus in New Delhi on Dec 16, was airlifted to Singapore on December 26 for specialist treatment.

The attack had sparked demonstrations across India, culminating last weekend in pitched battles between police and protesters outraged over the lack of safety for women in the capital.

"Despite all efforts by a team of eight specialists in Mount Elizabeth Hospital to keep her stable, her condition continued to deteriorate over these two days. She had suffered from severe organ failure following serious injuries to her body and brain."

"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," he added.

I don't think that can (legally) happen, as a law was introduced to provide for it only since the attack; thus using it in this case would be ex post facto.

Three things are especially outrageous about the attack itself. One is that they beat her (and the guy with her that night) with an iron pipe. They passed thru several police checkpoints during the attack. And they finally threw her out of a moving vehicle.

The current Home Minister even complained about not the attack itself, but the demonstrations against it (and the police laxity on this). That jerk will likely have to resign, but never should have been in the job to begin with; he was promoted to it from the job of Power Minister... the day after a major blackout covering most of the area from Delhi to Kolkata some months ago.

Frankly, incompetent Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should resign, with new elections called. I wonder if he'll try to avert that by hiding behind he (a Sikh) being the country's first non-Hindu Prime Minister. BTW, NDTV is probably the best source for the inevitable mass public outrage to com today across India. (Where its nearly 6 AM Saturday now).

Re: India gang rape victim dies

Respect to the Indian people for taking to the streets. Far too often rape is ignored and swept under the rug, or even tolerated and accepted by society.

Re: India gang rape victim dies

Can someone shed any light on the genesis of the rape?
Were the rapist fellow students and this was random.

Few years back, there was an article where Indian women were complaining that men routinely grope them on the commuter train from or to work during rush hours.
Was the demonstration triggered by the cumulative effect of incidents where women feel they are not protected?

It must have been brutal and violent for the woman to die.

THis is why, in the USA, rape is increasingly referred to as an act of physical and psychological violence.; not just sexual violation.

She will most certainly be remembered as a martyr for women's rights not only in India, but the world.
