SINGAPORE–An Indian student who was brutally gang-raped on a bus in New Delhi was “fighting for her life” after suffering a significant brain injury, the Singapore hospital treating her said Friday.

“The patient is currently struggling against the odds, and fighting for her life,” Kelvin Loh, chief executive officer of Mount Elizabeth Hospital where she was airlifted to from India, said in a statement.

“Our medical team’s investigations upon her arrival at the hospital yesterday showed that in addition to her prior cardiac arrest, she also had infection of her lungs and abdomen, as well as significant brain injury.”

    I have been to India and I thought it was so strange that there were so few women and so many men going about.

    If a place exercises freedom, as opposed to, say Saudi Arabia, and there are so many men, it will totally fall into chaos, as men have innate and uncontrollable sexual proclivities.
