Condemning the Delhi gangrape incident, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan emphasized on the need of women empowerment to act as a tool for country's progress.

"In the 2-3 years journey of my show 'Satyamev Jayate', I have learnt two things...one is that until we empower women and girls, our countrywill not progress," Khan told media.

"Severe punishments should be awarded to the guilty in these cases. Separate fast-track courts should be formed for speedy justice...people should come to know that we can't get away with our crimes," the actor said.

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old medical student who was subjected to gruesome torture inside a bus in the national capital on the night of Dec 16 when she was returning home after a film show with a male companion, is still not out of danger.

"She is conscious but not out of danger..She is communicating," said a doctor at New Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital where the victim is being treated.

Another doctor said the victim is still on ventilator.

"Her condition got worse due to internal bleeding last night," he said.

While the national capital erupted in anger and violence over the brutal gangrape of the Delhi girl, the victim's father has appealed for peace to everyone.


Speaking to some TV channels, the father of the girl said his daughter is a fighter and would survive the attack.

"My daughter is a fighter all her life. She is brave and she will survive the ordeal. Pray for her health," said the father of the victim.
