The 23-year-old woman, who was gang-raped and assaulted by six men in a moving bus, reached yesterday at the Singapore hospital for further treatment and was in an "extremely critical condition". The Indian High Commission assured that she is receiving full medical attention.
“The patient arrived at Mount Elizabeth Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit at 9.05 this morning in an extremely critical condition,” said the hospital spokesperson, adding that the girl is being examined and the hospital is working with the Indian High Commission.
“We request that the privacy of the patient and family be respected,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
The victim is fighting for her life with severe multiple intestinal, abdominal and other injuries.
The grievously injured victim was shifted out of Safdarjung Hospital and flown in an air ambulance to Singapore on Wednesday night. The decision was taken after her condition deteriorated, officials said.
