Delhi gang rape victim gave tuitions to pay fees
Hailing from Ballia, Uttar Pradesh, 'Braveheart' was hard working and ambitious
The Delhi ‘Brave heart’ who died yesterday came from a humble family, originally from Uttar Pradesh and gave tuitions to pay her school and college fees.
Born into a family from Ballia, the young woman, family friends said was hard working and desired to forge ahead in life.
Sources close to the family said they moved to the capital a quarter century ago.
The family settled in a middle-class neighbourhood in southwest Delhi.
The girl’s father, seeing her brilliance in academics, took loans to finance her higher studies. After her education, she went to Dehradun to train as a physiotherapist. She returned to Delhi and started as an intern in a private hospital in north Delhi.
As she was the eldest in the family, her kin was convinced that her success in academics would inspire her two younger brothers too.
“Like any family, they dreamt of their daughter getting a better job and a better salary,” a source said.
