Amanat kin happy over US award

The family of the Delhi gangrape victim, who is now known as Amanat, has said it was happy that the girl’s courage has been acknowledged by the United States which has selected her for a bravery award.

‘She is truly deserving of the award and we are happy that her courage and bravery has been acknowledged,’ the victim’s brother told PTI on phone from Delhi. The brother said they had received a phone call from the US embassy two days ago after which three officials came to their residence in Delhi and took all the details about his sister.

The International Women of Courage Award would be presented posthumously by US First Lady Michelle Obama and the Secretary of State John Kerry on 8 March, which is celebrated as International Women’s Day.

To a question, the brother said the family had not yet decided who will go to receive it.
