As per news agencies report "the 23-year-old girl, who put up a brave battle for life after she was gang-raped and brutally assaulted in a Delhi bus on December 16 that had created a nationwide outrage, died on Saturday morning in a hospital of Singapore.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal tweeted this morning: “Aren't we all responsible for her death? Can we all now do something so that half of humanity starts feeling safe amongst us?...Her death is a matter of shame and sorrow for all of us. Let's resolve that we will not let her death go in vain”.

Reacting to the news of the death of the gang-rape victim, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said it was a shameful moment not just as the CM but also as a citizen of the country.

Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj, tweeted: “Her death has shaken the conscience of the nation. We must wake up and make India safe for daughters”.

Fearing large-scale protests following the death of the gang-rape victim, Delhi Police announced that India Gate and its surrounding areas that comprise the capital's power centre would be out of bounds for the general public.

It is clear that India is not a safe place for women now a days.Since this case happened in Capital of India such the case got some importance and due to public protest.But every day there are many such cases taking place through out India and the cases are suppressed either by police or political interference and the victims are not getting proper justice often  due to present Indian Democratic setup..
