The body of an Indian woman who died after being gang raped on a bus has been taken to a Hindu casket firm in Singapore for embalming.
The 23-year-old student died early this morning at a hospital in Singapore, where she was taken for treatment after the brutal attack in New Delhi.
The Indian government has chartered an aircraft to fly the woman's body back to India later today, along with members of her family, the Indian High Commissioner to Singapore, T.C.A. Raghavan, told Reuters.
The gang rape of a young woman in Delhi has exposed deep fissures in Indian society, as assault victims finally find their voices.
Speaking hours before his daughters attackers appeared in court, the father of the India rape victim has called for the harshest penalty.
After almost three weeks of protests over the rape of an Indian woman on a Delhi bus, the nation could face a national strike.
