Amid outrage across the country against the gang-rape of a young woman student in Delhi, people in her native village are praying for her recovery and well-being.
Since the news of the incident came, locals of Medwara Kalan village are praying day and night in the local temple for the early recovery of the 23-year-old and that she succeeds in overcoming this testing phase, former village head Parasnath Yadav said.
The villagers have demanded capital punishment for the accused who brutalised the paramedic student in a Delhi bus. "We will continue to struggle till the time the accused are hanged," Yadav said.
One of the victim's uncle, who lives in the village, said he and his family had gone to Delhi to see the young woman. "People of the family are very worried after the incident," a family member said.
The native of Ballia was gang-raped by six men in a moving bus and later thrown out from the vehicle in South Delhi area on December 16.
