Delhi gangrape: Indians suggest steps forward
After the tragic death of the gangrape victim, members of civil society have suggested ways to bring about changes.

New Delhi: As a nation mourned the young woman who succumbed to her injuries in a brutal gang-rape in New Delhi, young men and women, lawyers and journalists on Twitter suggested concrete steps that could be taken to change the system and go forward to construct a better India.

The rape had shocked the nation and triggered peaceful protests from students who gathered at key points in the heart of capital to demand justice and better security for it's citizens.

The victim, a physiotherapist intern in Delhi and who waged a courageous battle to live, died peacefully at 4.45 am with her distraught family and Indian diplomats by her side, Singapore's Mount Elizabeth Hospital official Kelvin Loh said.

Please send in your suggestion and we will keep on updating this list.
