A young woman who was brutally attacked and raped by several men on a moving bus in New Delhi, India on December 16, died on Saturday as a result of her injuries.  Six men accused in the incident have been charged with murder.  If convicted, they could face the death penalty.

The savage nature of the incident led to violent protests and demands for improved protection for women.  In India rape is common and the conviction rates for the crime very low.

The young woman boarded a bus with a male companion after watching a movie at a mall. They were attacked and beaten with iron rods by the men and the woman repeatedly raped.  A rod was used in the rape, causing internal injuries.  After undergoing this agonizing torture she was thrown from the moving bus.  She died Saturday morning in Singapore where she had been flown for treatment.  According to hospital sources in Singapore she had an infection in her lungs and abdomen, liver damage and brain injury.  She died from organ failure.  Her body was flown back to India on Saturday.  Her male companion survived.

Prime minister Manmohan Singh expressed his condolences to the family of the victim on Saturday.  In a statement he said “We have already seen the emotions and energies this incident has generated.  It would be a true homage to her memory if we are able to channel these emotions and energies into a constructive course of action.”  He said the government is examining the penal provisions that exist for such crimes and measures to enhance the safety and security of women.
