Gang-rape victim's mother admitted to hospital

New Delhi, Dec 30 (IANS) The traumatised mother of the young trainee physiotherapist, who was brutally gang-raped in the capital early this month, collapsed and was admitted to Deen Dayal Uphadyay Hospital after her daughter's body was taken away for cremation Sunday morning.

"As soon as the body was taken away for cremation, she collapsed," Vimla, a neighbour of the family, told IANS.

The body of the gang-rape victim, who became the focus of countrywide protests and prayers, was cremated here early Sunday soon after it was flown in from Singapore at 3.30 a.m.

Since Saturday evening, a large number of people, mostly neighbours, had assembled outside the family's house in southwest Delhi's Mahavir Enclave to condole the woman's death.

The 23-year-old woman was brutally assaulted and gang-raped Dec 16 by six men in a moving bus in south Delhi before being thrown out of the vehicle. She battled for life -- first in Safdarjung Hospital here and then in a Singapore hospital -- before dying of her injuries Dec 29.
