Stop vandalism, protest in peace: victim’s father
In an exclusive interview to Chayanika Nigam, father of the 23-year-old paramedical student, who was brutally gangraped last Sunday, says he believes in God and the doctors taking care of his daughter.

‘I am so blessed to have a brave girl like her. Despite suffering such brutality, she is trying to overcome the trauma of that dark night,’ he said.

When the reporter asked him about the three persons who made PCR call, he said, ‘I am so thankful to them, though I have not met them so far. Some credit for my daughter’s life goes to them.’

He also appealed to the protesters to ‘stop vandalism and help police bring the culprits to justice at the earliest.’

While talking about his financial condition, he broke into tears and said, ‘I have two sons and a daughter, and I belong to a middle-class family. I have saved money by surviving in critical conditions, just to educate my children. I don’t even have any money left for my daughter’s treatment and to stay in Delhi. I had to borrow money from a relative, who himself is not in a good financial condition.’

When asked about the victim, who is battling for her life at Safdarjung hospital, he said, ‘Although her condition keeps fluctuating, I have full faith in doctors . The whole nation is praying for her.’

‘My daughter has been very brave since she was a child. Her younger brothers, who are still in school, are very proud of her. I have full confidence in her. She will definitely fight back,’ he added.

Meanwhile, the condition of the 23-year-old gang rape victim deteriorated on Monday, as she bled internally, with doctors saying she was ‘not as good’ as on Sunday.
