Body of gang rape victim on its way back to India for cremation
The Air India flight, carrying the body of the 23-year-old gang rape victim from New Delhi, took off from Changi Airport for India at about 12.30am on Sunday.
On board the plane, chartered by the Indian government to take the paramedical student home to be cremated, were the victim's family parents and two brothers.
The victim, who has never been named, died at Mount Elizabeth Hospital on Saturday morning after doctors at the hospital battled in vain to stabilise her condition.
She was flown to Singapore on Thursday morning for further medical treatment.
