“Our hearts are with the fam­ily of the girl, and we are very sad,” a fam­ily mem­ber of the woman’s friend said, de­clin­ing to be iden­ti­fied.

“Now that the girl has died, the six men should be tried for mur­der,” the fam­ily mem­ber said.

“They should be hanged as soon as pos­si­ble,” the fam­ily mem­ber added.

The fam­ily mem­ber said they would at­tend the last rites of the woman af­ter her body was brought to In­dia from Sin­ga­pore.

Mean­while, Ravi­das Camp, a south Delhi slum, which is home to four of the six gang- rapists, was seething with anger over the woman’s death as some res­i­dents pressed for hang­ing the cul­prits and de­scribed them as “wolves”.

“Ram Singh ( who was driv­ing the bus) must be hanged as such wolves de­serve noth­ing less than that,” area res­i­dent and class X stu­dent Pooja Ya­dav said.

“Our heads hang in shame to­day be­cause of the de­spi­ca­ble act of th­ese boys. They must reap what they have sown,” said Ra­jji, a woman in her 20s.
