New Delhi, Dec 16: Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar on Monday said that the situation on the ground about women's safety didn't change even after a year since the gangrape of a paramedical student in New Delhi.

The 23-year-old woman, who was brutally assaulted by six men in a moving bus on the night of December 16 last year while she was returning home with a male companion, succumbed to her injuries 13 days later, in a Singapore hospital.

Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said that the people in general are more aware now about such crimes.

A massive protest had rocked the nation in the wake of the horrific incident and the government was forced to amend laws.
