Singapore: The distraught family of the Delhi braveheart hopes her death will contribute to making India a safer place for woman, an Indian diplomat said on Saturday. Indian High Commissioner TCA Raghavan said the family was "deeply affected" by the death of the woman who was brutally raped and tortured in a moving bus in Delhi on December 16 and left to die by a roadside.
But the family was also moved by a large number of messages of support they had received from everywhere, Raghavan told the media. "They hope that the death of their child will lead to a better future for women in Delhi and India," he quoted them as saying.
The 23-year-old girl was shifted out of Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital to Singapore on Thursday in a desperate bid to save ber life after she suffered multi-organ failure.
