Indian rape victim's condition deteriorating: Singapore hospital

Fri Dec 28, 2012 10:40am EST

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - The condition of the Indian medical student, whose gang rape in New Delhi triggered nationwide protests, has deteriorated and there are signs her vital organs have failed, the Singapore hospital treating her said on Friday.

"As of 9 p.m. Singapore time on Dec. 28 (10.00 a.m. EST), the patient's condition has taken a turn for the worse. Her vital signs are deteriorating with signs of severe organ failure," Mount Elizabeth Hospital Chief Executive Officer Kelvin Loh said in a statement.

"Her family members have been informed that her condition has deteriorated and they are currently by her side to encourage and comfort her," he said.

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

3. I think of what they did to her and I break into tears

It's hard to imagine how she didn't die at the time when they brutally yanked her intestines out with a metal rod.

I can't even pretend to hold the tears back.

6. this poor young woman--there are not words enough.

for those who perpetrated this heinous act, and those who stood by and did nothing, and for those who dismiss it, or condone it, I wish absolutely EVERYTHING they deserve.

7. Absolutely heartbreaking. It might be time to let her go.

What her poor body has been through, it likely cannot survive it, and I'm not sure what quality of life she would have if it did.

What a tragedy. May those who attacked her suffer to the fullest amount possible.

8. India is a highly corrupt state, probably "failed"

it should be considered. Public group rape without intervention of law enforcement or other civilians underscores how low things have sunk, IMO.

12. Many of them do seem to treat their wives as unpaid domestic servants -

seamstresses, dishwashers, courtesans, nannies, gardeners, housekeeping personnel, launderers ... There really is an awful lot of misogyny in South Asia, seems to me.

14. Men who do not take responsibility for their actions should not be allowed to vote or own property.

Or go outside unleashed.

13. This is a different one from the one who committed suicide?

Riding buses in India isn't safe for women.

I'd like to know about the fucking bus driver now. "Moving vehicle"?

18. One of the rapists is the brother of the bus driver. Looks like the police were in on it, too.

From the same wiki link:

On 21 December 2012, the Delhi High Court reprimanded the Delhi police for being "evasive" in a probe status report providing details of officers on patrol duty in the area covered by the bus route. A further court hearing on this matter is scheduled for 9 January 2013. The following day, the Delhi Police initiated action against three Hauz Khas police station personnel for alleged inaction on an alleged robbery of the bus on which the gang rape and assault occurred. Just before the gang rape, the accused had robbed a carpenter, Ramadhar, after picking him up in their area. On 24 December 2012, two Assistant Commissioners of Police were suspended for failing to prevent the gang rape incident.[3
