The victim's platelet count has been fluctuating since Saturday and it stood at a low 19,000 during the last observation yesterday. Normal platelet count in a healthy individual is between 150,000 and 450,000 per micro-litre of blood, which augurs a disaster for the girl who has today become a synonym for atrocities against women even though she remains in anonymity as a nameless person in public.
The doctors said sepsis, a severe blood infection that can lead to organ failure, is one of their major concerns and noted that the bilirubin level of the victim has increased to 6.3.
The paramedical student, who was gangraped last Sunday night in a moving bus here, was also administered another four bottles of platelet-rich plasma. The girl is also suffering from high fever, the doctors said.
People gathered outside the hospital wishing her well say the girl's case may be hopeless, but she is giving others hope with her spirited fight.
Many are seen praying for her welfare, while others insist that her death will turn her into a martyr for the cause of women emancipation and fuel a country-wide reforms movement for women's welfare.
