The 23-year-old Delhi gangrape victim, who was flown in an air ambulance from here on early Thursday, is in an extremely critical condition at the super-specialty Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.
The Singapore hospital authorities have described the girl’s condition as “extremely critical”.
“Prior to her arrival, she has already undergone three abdominal surgeries and experienced a cardiac arrest in India. A multi-disciplinary team of specialists is taking care of her and doing everything possible to stabilise her condition,” said Dr Kelvin Loh, chief executive officer, Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
The air ambulance carrying the girl and a team of doctors left Delhi at 11.45 pm on Wednesday, while her family members travelled in a commercial jet. She reached Singapore at 9.05 am local time on Thursday and was immediately admitted to the ICU of Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
Her family has been accommodated at a hotel, with 24-hour attachment of a liaison officer from the Indian High Commission.
The decision to shift her was taken by the Centre. In a statement, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said that the govt will spare no efforts to save her and will bear the entire cost of her treatment.
