New Delhi: Olympic bronze-medallist Indian woman boxer M C Mary Kom has joined the nation in condemning the gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedical student in the city, saying that the ghastly incident has left her shaken and distressed.
The 29-year-old mother-of-two, is praying for the girl, who is battling for life in a city hospital after being brutalised in a moving bus by six men, all of whom have been arrested by the police.
"The sheer brutality of the incident has left me completely shaken. I hope it never happens to any girl. I am praying that the victim survives. It is deeply disturbing that an incident like this took place in a modern society. We have to reflect on where we are headed as a society," Mary Kom told PTI.
