"She is not out of danger but as compared to yesterday she is better. Still she need partial support to breathe," said doctors who is calling the girl by the name of Jyoti.
"Her liver functions are stable by and large though there is a slight rise in Bilirubin which is a matter of concern. Her internal bleeding reduced significantly," said doctors who added that the Platelets count improved at 81,000 now and hemoglobin also improved.
Doctors said she was given blood, platelets and plasma and so they would call it a real improvement when her body starts producing them.
Her blood coagulation is also little better but it cannot be said for certain since a lot of it is pumped in.
Doctors said she is responding to antibiotics though her fever still runs between 102 and 103.
Doctors said she remained stable psychologically.
Reports said the victim's statement of the events of that fateful night on Dec 16, when she was raped and brutalized by six men on a moving bus, was re-recorded on Tuesday before a Metropolitan Magistrate after the lady magistrate who recorded it earlier alleged
police intervention during the recording on Monday night.
The 23-year-old girl, who was raped and brutalized with an iron rod on a moving bus and then thrown off the vehicle along with his male companion on Dec 16 when she was returning home after a film show, is fighting for her life in Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital even as protests sweep the national capital and triggered violence in which a police constable died at an India Gate protest, while hundreds were injured in police action.
