The man on the bus with the young female gang-raped by six men on a Delhi bus on December 16 told AFP they spent two hours by the side of a road until police officers decided to take the young female to hospital. The man said the bus passengers “had everything planned” when they got on the vehicle.
They started teasing my friend and the same led to a brawl. I beat three of them up but then the rest brought an iron rod and hit me. Before I fell unconscious, they took my friend away.
The girl was raped for almost an hour and then thrown off the bus with her friend. Before doing so they snatched all the couple’s belongings and tore off their clothes “in order to destroy any evidence of the crime”. They spent two hours by the side of the road where the boy tried to catch the attention of rickshaws and passers-by until someone stopped and called the police.
The young female died at a Singapore hospital after undergoing three operations at a local hospital in Delhi. She died last weekend and her name was Jyoti Singh Pandey. She was supposed to wed in February.
