    29th December 2012

    India is set on fire filled with rage and anger for all the heinous crimes that have been taking place in our country. The recent Delhi gang-rape event has made things worse and people have now set out to protest against this crime.

    The victim who was hospitalized for over a week, passed away today after fighting this brutal attack on her. Though doctors had given up hope, they were still trying to see if they could try different ways of helping her. She was shifted from Delhi to a Singapore hospital for an organ transplant. But it wasn't even a day that she reached Singapore and she breathe her last.

    Doctors say, she passed away due to a celebral edema, after suffering a cardiac arrest, but the reasons are still unknown.

    While everyone mourns the death of this braveheart, Bollywood is standing very strong against this crime and want to make sure justice is provided to the victim and her family.
