New Delhi: The 23-year-old gangrape victim had been admitted to a Singapore hospital and was stable, union Minister of Health and Family Welfare Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Thursday.

The girl had been flown to Singapore for treatment late Wednesday.

The grievously injured physiotherapist was shifted out of Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital and flown in an air ambulance to Singapore's Mt Elizabeth Hospital that is renowned for organ transplants.

The decision was taken after her condition deteriorated, officials said. Her parents are also accompanying her.

Admitted to the hospital on 16 December, the woman was operated upon thrice and had to have her small intestine removed due to extensive injuries following the brutal torture and sexual assault by five men and a juvenile who raped her in a moving bus.
