An Indian nurse who was raped and strangled has died after 42 years in a vegetative state. Aruna Shanbaug was attacked in 1973 by a cleaner in a Mumbai hospital where she worked and was left to die. The country’s supreme court rejected legal filings to take her off life support, but her case ultimately forced India to relax restrictions on euthanasia. At the time of her attack, sodomy was not considered rape, which allowed her attacker to be freed after only seven years in prison. He is thought to be working in a hospital in Delhi.
