The rape survivor from Unnao, who was airlifted to Delhi and admitted to the Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi, is extremely critical and on ventilator, with 95 per cent burns, according to the medical bulletin released by the Safurdarjung Hospital.

"The condition of the patient is extremely critical and she is on ventilator. Even her vitals are very low," Dr Shalab Kumar, Head of Burn and Plastic Surgery at the hospital said earlier in the day.

The Delhi Traffic Police on Thursday provided a "green corridor" for hindrance-free movement of the ambulance carrying her from the airport to the hospital. 

"We have set up a dedicated ICU room for the patient. A team of doctors are consistently monitoring her health condition," Dr Sunil Gupta, Medical Superintendent at Safdarjung Hospital, said.

The rape survivor suffered severe burns after five men, including two of the rape accused, allegedly set her on fire while she was on her way to court, police said.

One of the two men accused of raping her last year was granted bail 10 days back. The other man had been on the run. All the five men involved in Thursday morning's attack were arrested within hours and the victim airlifted in the evening from the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Hospital in Lucknow to Delhi.
