According to the ANI, the woman was gang-raped in Hathras on September 14, 2020, and was admitted to Delhi’s Safdarjung hospital for better healthcare facilities.
“Hathras gang-rape victim was admitted at Safdarjung hospital for better healthcare facilities. She died today morning,” a Safdarjung hospital official said.
As per IANS, on September 14, the victim was dragged by the dupatta around her neck to a field when she had gone to collect cattle fodder, which injured her spinal cord. When she was held down, she apparently bit her own tongue which caused a deep cut
Fakhrul Hoda, head of neurosurgery at the Aligarh hospital where she was being treated, told reporters that “Surgery to fix her spine could only have been done after her condition improved. The damage to the spinal cord appeared to be permanent.”
