While the bus had been washed, the police said they were able to pick up enough forensic evidence, such as nail scratchings, DNA and hair.

Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said the driver of the chartered bus, which was primarily a school bus, was using it for commercial purposes illegally. He also said they would seek a fast-track trial in the case, with daily hearings, so that the accused are punished at the earliest.

While the maximum punishment for this crime is life sentence, the commissioner added, the Delhi Police would send a proposal to the government seeking death sentence.

While doctors have done their best to repair the victim's intestinal injuries, they are concerned about infection. According to Dr B D Athani, Medical Superintendent, Safdarjung Hospital: "In the morning she was drifting in and out of consciousness, and even communicating with us through handwritten notes. By evening however, her blood platelet count dropped and her blood pressure was extremely high."
