Rape victim's father speaks of final moments with daughter

The father of the woman who died after being gang-raped in Delhi has spoken of his final moments with his daughter in hospital.

Her brother was also cited by the local newspaper India Times as saying that the decision to transfer her to a hospital in Singapore came late.

I went to see her in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in Safdarjung Hospital .

She asked me if I had taken my dinner. I answered yes. She then told me that I should sleep. She said ... 'you go to sleep, I will also sleep'.

Then she embraced my hand and slept as a tear dropped from the corner of her eye. Those were her last words to me.
