The Park Street rape victim, who was brutalised inside a moving car in February 2012 triggering nationwide outrage, today died at a city hospital.
“She passed away in the morning. She was suffering from health problems and got admitted to a city hospital for last few days,” Joint CP (Crime) Pallab Kanti Ghosh told PTI.
Ghosh, however, said details about her ailment were still awaited.
The woman in her mid-30s was raped in a moving car in Park Street area on February 6, 2012, by five young men who picked her up from outside a pub.
The incident triggered nationwide outrage as the administration initially termed it as “a fabricated case to malign authorities.”
While three of the accused are behind bars, two others, including the prime accused, are still at large.
