Delhi gangrape: Anand Mahindra offers victim a job
The Mahindra Group Chairman and MD tweeted that the employee welfare departments of his companies need medical officers.

New Delhi: Anand Mahindra, Chairman and Managing Director of the Mahindra Group, has assured the Delhi gangrape victim of a job in his business house. Mahindra tweeted that he was ready to give the 23-year-old girl, who is battling for her life in Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital, a job. "We assure her a job offer at Mahindra," Mahindra tweeted. His next tweet was, "Employee welfare depts. of our companies need medical officers."

While the 23-year-old who was gangraped, beaten and thrown out of a moving bus along with a male friend in Delhi is fighting for her life, one of the two absconding suspects has been detained for questioning in Aurangabad, Bihar. Three of the accused were produced in a Delhi court on Wednesday and confessed. One of the accused, Vinay Sharma, went on to plead for a death sentence.

Both the victim, a paramedical student, and her male friend, who had boarded the chartered bus with tinted glass windows from Munirka in south Delhi to Palam around 9.45 PM on Sunday night, were assaulted with an iron rod by the men after the two resisted before they were dumped on the road side near Mahipalpur flyover, police said.

The 23-year-old victim continues to fight for her life. Doctors treating her say some of her vital organs have been permanently damaged and she's suffering from a blood infection. She has been on ventilator support now for over 60 hours now. A medical bulletin is expected on Wednesday evening.
