Gangrape victim flown to Singapore for treatment

New Delhi, Dec 27 (IANS) The 23-year-old grievously injured gangrape victim was late Wednesday night flown out of India for treatment in Singapore, doctors said.

The woman, who was brutally raped Dec 16, was shifted out of Safdarjung Hospital and flown in an air ambulance to Singapore, where she will be treated at the Mt Elizabeth hospital which is renowned for organ transplants, Safdarjung Hospital medical superintendent B.D. Athani said in a bulletin.

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

The young woman was operated upon thrice and had to have her small intestine removed due to extensive injuries following brutal torture by the six men who raped her in a moving bus.

The doctors praised the woman's 'fortitude and courage'.

The decision to shift her was taken on doctors' advice and the government made all the arrangements to shift her in a state-of-the-art air ambulance.

The woman's pulse rate had reportedly dropped alarmingly Tuesday night
