Students mourn death of colleague
Indian schoolgirls form numbers representing the year 2013 during a prayer ceremony in Ahmedabad yesterday following muted New Year’s celebrations.
The gang-rape and killing of a New Delhi student set off an impassioned debate about what India needs to do to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. The country remains in mourning, three days after the 23-year-old physiotherapy student died from her internal wounds in a Singapore hospital.
Floral writing at the centre reads “Condolence to Damini”, a symbolic name given to the victim. (AP Picture.)
