In devastating news, the Unnao rape survivor, who was burnt alive by the two accused on Thursday – died at Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital late Friday night.

As per a report from News 18, her health had started deteriorating at around 8:30 PM, and she breathed her last around 11:40 PM.

Despite our best efforts, she did not survive. Her condition deteriorated towards the evening. She had a cardiac arrest around 11:10 PM. We tried to resuscitate her, but she passed away around 11:40 PM.
