The Times of India reported the 23-year-old woman was allegedly gang-raped in a moving bus by six men before being thrown from the bus in New Delhi late last week.

In a final attempt to save her from the brutal injuries incurred during the rape, she was flown to a Singaporean hospital, where she died on Saturday.
