Even as Delhi‘s 23-year-old gangrape victim’s condition deteriorated, she has shown immense sipirt to live.
According to television reports, in a written communication to her mother, the girl has said: “Maa, main jeena chahti hoon” (Mother, I want to live).
Several politicians have been visiting the girl at Safdarjung Hospital where she was admitted after being brutally sexually assaulted in a moving bus on Sunday night.
Her condition, which had improved a little after she was operated upon on Sunday night, deteriorated Monday evening. Doctors are battling to keep infections at bay as the injuries are extensive. Her platelet count had dropped, with blood pressure being unstable.
The next 24 hours are critical. If she pulls through, her chances of survival will improve, say doctors.
Specialists from AIIMS trauma centre have been called in before doctors decide whether the girl needs to be operated upon further. They hope to curb further spread of infection.
Delhi High Court, which rapped the police for failing to prevent the rape in a moving bus, asked the government to provide best medical facilities to the victim and her friend.
Four of the six men who allegedly raped the girl have been arrested. The driver of the bus, in which she was gangraped and tortured, has been remanded to police custody for five days. Serch is on for two more culprits who are absconding.
