Delhi gangrape: Police detain another accused in late night raid

New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Thursday detained another accused in the horrific gangrape of the 23-year-old medical student in a moving bus in the national capital. The police were conducting raids in Haryana and Bihar to trace the accused who had been absconding.

The Delhi Police will file a status report in the High Court on Friday. It is expected to explain its failure in stopping the bus during the horrific incident on the fateful night even though it crossed five police pickets.

Meanwhile, the health of the victim is said to be stable, although she is still on ventilator support. Doctors say that her chances of survival depend on her body's ability to fight off the infection in her blood and stomach.

The victim has been on and off ventilator for over 70 hours now. On Thursday, the doctors lauded the spirit of the girl who has been communicating with her mother, brothers and the doctors through writing. She asked whether her tormentors had been caught.

Delhi will witness more protests on Friday with Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party holding a demonstration at Jantar Mantar. Families of several rape victims are also expected to join him.
