India rape: Father 'did not want victim named'

Source: BBC

The father of an Indian woman who died after being gang raped on a Delhi bus has denied a British newspaper report that he wanted his daughter named.

The man was quoted by India's Hindustan Times as saying her identity should only be revealed if her name was attached to a new law.

2. In a way, her not having a name sort of makes it more universal.

She is Every Victim, like the Unknown Soldier a representative of all those who's name will never be known.
