Delhi gang-rape victim's father reveals daughter's name to give survivors 'courage'

London, Jan 6 (ANI): The Delhi gang-rape victim's father has revealed the name of his brave daughter to give courage to other women who have survived such attacks.

According to UK's The Sunday People, the devastated father asserted that he wanted the world to know his brave daughter's name, who earlier was known to the world only as India's Daughter following her sickening gang rape and murder, as she didn't do anything wrong and died while protecting herself.

"We want the world to know her real name," he said.

"My daughter didn't do anything wrong, she died while protecting herself," he said.

"I am proud of her. Revealing her name will give courage to other women who have survived these attacks. They will find strength from my daughter," he added.

The distressed father also clarified that his daughter's friend, who was with her that night, was not her boyfriend but just a very brave friend who tried to save her.

"There was no question of her marrying because we belong to different castes," he said.

"She never expressed a desire to marry. She was concentrating on her studies and wanted a job first," he added.

ANI at its editorial discretion, has refrained from naming the victim for the time being.
