The 23-year-old girl, who was gang-raped and brutally assaulted in a Delhi bus nearly a fortnight ago, died at a hospital in Singapore early Saturday.
The girl who was admitted on Thursday morning at the multi-organ speciality facility, Mount Elizabeth Hospital, in an extremely critical condition here, died at 4:45 AM local time (2:15 AM Indian time), the hospital said in a statement.
The hospital chief executive officer Dr Kelvin Loh said: “We are very sad to report that the patient passed away peacefully at 4.45 AM on 29 Dec 2012 (Singapore time). Her family and officials from the High Commission of India were by her side. The Mount Elizabeth Hospital team of doctors, nurses and staff join her family in mourning her loss,” Dr Loh added.
