Victim's mother admitted to hospital
The distraught mother of the young trainee physiotherapist, who was brutally gang-raped in the capital early this month, collapsed and was admitted to Safdarjung Hospital after her daughter's body was taken away for cremation.
“As soon as the body was taken away for cremation, she collapsed,” said Vimla, a neighbour of the family.
Since last evening, a large number of people, mostly neighbours, had assembled outside the family’s house in southwest Delhi’s Mahavir Enclave to condole the woman’s death.
The victim was assaulted and gang-raped by six men in a moving bus before being thrown out of the vehicle on Dec 16.
