Mumbai, Aug 29: She wowed the entire nation with her courage and presence of mind even after she was brutally gangraped and now respect and admiration continues to flow as the Mumbai gangrape victim walked out of the Jaslok hospital without covering her face on Tuesday night.
The photojournalist, who is an intern for a magazine, was gangraped on August 22 by five men in the deserted Shakti Mills compound while she was on an assignment and was accompanied by her colleague. After the brutal incident she straightaway headed to the hospital where she narrated the whole incident to the doctors, who then called the police.
On Tuesday after the doctors declared her to be 'medically fit', the victim was in a dilemma whether to leave the hospital with her face covered or to walk out like any other normal patient.
