Date of Incident - 16-Dec-2012 Sunday
This is a very heinous act that has been done and I believe that death sentence or shot dead is no punishment for such sick minded people, these people should be allowed to live without their manliness, this is a shame and a bigger shame on the fact that inspite of everything Delhi tops the Rape rate and is also the rape capital of the city, read for yourself.
I wonder if the girl will survive and then be able to live.

Amidst the arrests and the investigation by the police in the shocking case, the health of the victim has deteriorated again. While her condition got better on Tuesday morning, she was again put on ventilator in the evening, according to the medical update from the Safdarjung hospital.

As the 23-year-old medical student who was gangraped in Delhi on Sunday evening battles for life, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde met top Delhi Police officials on Wednesday to discuss ways to prevent such crimes from occurring again at the meeting.
Speaking in the Rajya Sabha, Shinde said that it has been decided that tinted glasses and curtains will be removed from buses. "In the review meeting with the police officers and transport officers, it was decided that there shall be immediate crackdown on all vehicles with tinted glasses and impounded. All public transport vehicles will have keep the lights inside the vehicle on while on roads," Shinde said. On Tuesday, at a press conference, the Delhi Police Commissioner said that the curtains of the bus hid the crime.
The driver's number and licence will be displayed on the bus. Shinde also said that all buses will have GPS installed in them for the police to track them. "The Delhi Police shall undertake verification of drivers, staff of buses and if buses are operated by unverified staff they will face action," Shinde added.
Shinde said that it will be inquired as to why no PCR van stooped the bus. "PCRs are in the corner and every hour they carry out a patrol. It will be inquired why the bus wasn't stopped," Shinde said.
Meanwhile, BJP leader Sushma Swaraj once again called for a death sentence for the culprits in the case within 30 days. "This case should be held in a fast-track court and come to the decision to hang the guilty in 30 days," she said.
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has called meeting of all women groups in Delhi at 6 pm on Wednesday. "I want a consensus among all political parties on whether the Delhi Police and law and order should be under the Delhi government," Dikshit told CNN-IBN.
This comes hours after Congress President Sonia Gandhi sent letters to Shinde and Dikshit seeking immediate action. Sonia Gandhi also visited the victim's family at Safdarjung Hospital late on Tuesday night and inquired about the victim's health.
The 23-year-old victim continues to fight for her life. Doctors treating her say some of her vital organs have been permenantly damaged and she's suffering from a blood infection. She has been on ventilator support now for over 60 hours now. A medical bulletin is expected on Wednesday evening.
Four people, including the prime accused, have been arrested. Bus driver Ram Singh has been sent to five-day custody. Police say all six accused will now be charged with attempt to murder. Two accused, though, are still absconding.
Speaking to CNN-IBN, activists and former police officers voiced out their anger over the case and gave suggestions like increasing police presence immediately, creating a citizen volunteer force and ensuring speedier justice in rape cases.
"Increase police presence overnight, which means from tomorrow re-allocate over 600 PCR vans at vulnerable points at night and those PCR vans must be supported by citizen bodies and civil defence and a woman policeman. We created this kind of a citizen volunteer force, why have those good practices gone," former IPS officer and activist Kiran Bedi said.
The atmosphere at the Ravidas Camp in RK Puram Sector 3 was sombre on Tuesday as three of the four men arrested for raping a 23-year-old girl in a moving bus were picked up from the slum on Monday evening. Blaming Ram Singh and his brother Mukesh for maligning the name of the colony,

Hang them! Demands India
A nightmare on the streets
their estranged sister-in-law said that they were the black sheep of the family.
"We were not on speaking terms with them. They used to live in a different house. It was very common to hear stories about them getting into fights and stealing from people. No one was very happy with their behaviour and their parents went back to their village two months back because they were fed up of their behaviour," she said.
Hari Ram Sharma, whose 20-year-old son Vinay Sharma was also picked up by the police from his house, was not convinced that his son could do something so heinous. He said he was not friends with either Ram Singh or Mukesh.
"He had told us that he was just going out for a stroll. His friend Kalu had come to call him at around 8 pm on Sunday evening. He reached home a little after 10 pm, ate food and went to sleep," Sharma said.
Vinay, who worked as an assistant instructor in a gym near Siri Fort, scanned news channels the entire day on Monday.
"The gym where he works is closed on Mondays and Vinay was at home all day on Monday. He watched the news throughout the day. He did not get into fights with people and was just a kid. I don't think he was involved in the crime but if it is proved that he was I would suggest that the courts give him a fitting punishment," Sharma said.
According to Vinay's mother, when the police came to take him away he asked her to trust him.
"Maine aisa kuch nahi kia jis se aap ko sharminda hona pade (I have not done anything to shame you)," he said.
The fourth accused, 18-year-old Pawan Gupta, alias Kalu, also lives in the same colony with his parents and two siblings.
"My son is just a kid. I am sure he can't do something like this," said Indira Devi, Kalu’s mother who along with her husband runs a small fruit shop in RK Puram sector 1.
The neighbours, meanwhile, say that they are fed up of coming under the scanner because of Ram Singh and Mukesh.
New Delhi: The 23-year-old physiotherapist, victim of a brutal gangrape and assault, is stable and conscious, the doctors attending to her said on Thursday. However, she is not completely out of danger yet, they added. The young woman continues to be on ventilator support and a serious infection in her abdomen and the amount of blood loss are among the primary concerns of the doctors.
Her platelet count too has been diminishing, the doctors said. However, they lauded her spirit saying she was a fighter and continued to communicate through gestures and written notes with her mother and the doctors.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old's male friend identified Mukesh, one of the accused, during the test identification parade at Tihar jail on Thursday. The police are also questioning the family members of the last of the accused who is still absconding. They are carrying out raids in Haryana and Bihar.
