Indian Rape Victim Dies

Men accused will be charged with murder.

A New Delhi gang-rape victim passed away Friday after suffering a brain injury and organ failure due to a horrific attack that has sparked protests throughout the country. The Indian medical student was attacked on a bus on Dec. 16 by six men who inserted a rod into her body, stripped her naked, and threw her off the bus on a road. Her injuries were so severe that she spent several days in intensive care before being airlifted to Singapore for treatment. A statement from the hospital said the 23-year-old victim “died peacefully.” In a tweet to the public, Delhi police appealed for calm following her death, writing, “Praying hard for the rape victim will ensure accused are given severest punishment and quickly Reqst ppl to stay calm and maintain peace [sic].” The accused rapists are being charged with murder.
