As people's anger over the death of Delhi gangrape victim spilled out into the streets, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday broke his silence on the ghastly incident calling for introspection and resolve to ensure the security and dignity of women.

"My heart goes out to the family of the young girl and millions of young Indians, families who work, hope and pray for a better India. We as a nation must reflect on the events of the days gone by," Rahul said, offering his deep condolences to the young girl's family.

As citizens, we must resolve to respect the dignity of women and follow the laws of the land, he said.

"I join my mother and sister in offering deep felt condolences to the young girl's family. My thoughts and prayers are with the family," Rahul said.

The girl, who was gangraped by six men in a moving bus in south Delhi on December 16, breathed her last in a Singapore hospital early this morning after battling for life for the past 13 days.
