The 23-year-old Delhi gang rape victim has reached Singapore and she has been admitted to the ICU of Mount Elizabeth Hospital here, said reports.

The hospital specializes in multi-organ transplant procedures.

Large parts of the victim's intestines were removed as a result of the injuries she suffered from the attack.

The victim was moved to the airport on Wednesday from a hospital in Delhi in an ambulance and her papers have been arranged by the government.

Doctors who have been treating the woman at Safdarjung Hospital did not issue the usual medical bulletin on Wednesday, but have maintained that even she has been responding to the treatment, her condition has remained critical.

As the condition of the woman remained worrying, authorities have been under tremendous pressure from all fronts as the incident sparked protests nationwide.

In their medical bulletin on Tuesday doctors attending the victim said she continued to be critical but is improving and is a shade better than she was a day ago.

The 23-year-old medical student was raped and brutalized with an iron rod on a moving bus and then thrown off the vehicle along with her male companion on December 16, when she was returning home after watching a movie.
