New Delhi: ‘Save me, I don’t want to die. But make sure they are not spared. They must hang.’ The Unnao rape victim who passed away at Delhi’s Safdarjung hospital on Friday night said this to her brother. “I assured her that no one will be spared,” the brother told media persons earlier in the day, as reported.

The Delhi Traffic Police had provided a “green corridor” for hindrance-free movement of the ambulance carrying her from the airport to the hospital.
The 23-year-old rape survivor was on her way to a court in Rae Bareli when was set on fire by five men outside the Sindupur village in Unnao district. Within hours, all the five men involved in the attack were arrested.

She had filed a case against the two in March this year. Shubham was arrested but secured bail in November. Immediately after securing bail, Shubham started following and threatening her.
