Other doctors said that even while discussing the victim's transfer to Singapore, when the family was being given an "accurate picture" of the seriousness of her condition, the mother's only question was "when" her daughter would recover.
"We are all in shock. Nobody can accept this news. My wife took it the hardest. It is too painful. I have not gone inside her room. She was born in this house. Her books, clothes they are all here. It is hard to believe I will never hear her voice again, she will never read books to me in English again," said the victim's father. As he attended to some phone calls through the day, his sons urged him to catch up on some sleep.
In the chaos, the family has not even managed to choose a picture of the victim to garland. A garland brought by somebody lies discarded in a corner. "It is too painful to look through her pictures," said the father.
The family, meanwhile, faced another problem as the entire neighbourhood came to know the identity of the gangrape victim.
"Till now, we had managed to keep the news relatively secret, and the few media channels which came here were turned away by some neighbours close to us. But when we arrived with my sister's body early morning on Sunday, there was such extensive security deployment..." said the victim's brother, adding that the streets outside were now blocked with curious neighbours. "We cannot even step out of the house. At this point, who wants to face the questions?" he said.
Security personnel continued to be deployed during the day as several VIPs, including Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, visited the family. "I am tired... I have not stepped out of my room. Some VIPs came, but my father attended to them," said the victim's brother.
