Rape case victim shifted to Singapore hospital, remains critical

Singapore, Dec 79, 2012, (PTI)

The 23-year-old Delhi gang-rape victim was admitted this morning to the Mount Elizabeth Hospital’s intensive care unit here in an extremely critical condition, a hospital spokesperson said.

“The patient arrived at Mount Elizabeth Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit this morning in an extremely critical condition,” the spokesperson told PTI.

“She is being examined and the hospital is working with the Indian High Commission. We request that the privacy of the patient and family be respected,” the spokesperson said.

Earlier, the Indian High Commission in Singapore said that the plane carrying the girl landed at the Changi International Airport at 7.30 am (5 am IST).

The decision to shift the girl was taken at the highest level of the Indian government.

On December 16, the girl was gang-raped and brutally assaulted in a moving bus and was undergoing treatment at a hospital in Delhi.

The girl, battling for life for the past 10 days at Safdarjung hospital in New Delhi, remained on ventilator support during most part of her treatment in Delhi.

Later, the High Commission in a statement said the girl is receiving full medical attention at the hospital.

Full medical attention assured

“We assure all concerned that the patient is receiving full medical attention and the family is also being provided all possible assistance by the High Commission,” it said.

The High Commission has also conveyed to the hospital and the family request for privacy of the patient and the family be respected.

“We have received numerous queries regarding the condition of the patient and also many offers to help. We are deeply grateful for all of these offers,” the statement said.

“At this stage, we would request that the privacy of the patient, family members as also of the medical team in attendance is fully respected so that the treatment may continue smoothly,” the statement added.
