“The patient condition remains extremely critical as before,” said Dr. Kelvin Loh, CEO of Mount Elizabeth Hospital. “Prior to coming to Singapore, she had three abdominal surgeries and cardiac arrests in India. Currently, we have a multidisciplinary team of specialists who are taking care of her and doing everything possible to stabilize her condition.”

The 23-year-old woman spent days in intensive care after what police said was a rape and beating on December 16 on a moving bus in New Delhi.
