Delhi gangrape victim's male friend meets her in hospital

By Pti

New Delhi, Dec 21: The male friend of the 23-year-old girl, who was gang-raped in a moving bus in Delhi, met her for the first time in hospital during which she enquired from him about the accused. The male friend, a software engineer, who was also badly assaulted by the accused when he tried to protect the victim from the attack, met the para-medical student at Safdarjung Hospital on Thursday night during which he told her that the accused have been arrested, the girl's brother said on Friday.

"Yesterday at around 9 PM, the friend of my sister who was also there in the bus on that fateful Sunday came to visit her. This was the first time that both were meeting each other after the incident. He met for her for five minutes," the brother said. He said his sister during the entire course of the treatment had enquired about the condition of her male friend and that if he was ok or not.

"When the male friend saw my sister, the first thing he said was that all the culprits have been arrested. And these words brought a pleasant look on my sister's face," the brother said. The brother, who had met her sister three to four times after the incident, said that during her first meeting he had also said that all the culprits have been arrested and that they will be given the strictest punishment, which made her happy.

According to the brother, the victim is still in a critical condition. "The victim, who is currently having a tube inside her mouth, is communicating with the doctors and family member through gestures and writing on pieces of paper," he said.

Asked whether the victim has given any statement to the police, the brother said, "My mother told me that the police had asked her something and she has written something on a paper. Now, whether it is a statement or not I don't know."
