Indian rape victim's name - Jyoti Singh Pandey

By: Marisse in News

Badri, 53, Indian gang rape victim's father, told The Sunday People: “We want the world to know her real name."


“I am proud of her. Revealing her name will give courage to other women who have survived these attacks. They will find strength from my daughter.”

"I want the world to know my daughter's name is Jyoti Singh Pandey". “My daughter didn’t do anything wrong, she died while protecting herself.

Jyoti Singh Pandey is known to the world only as India’s Daughter following her sickening gang rape and murder. But with permission of her devastated father, her name is now revealed.

Badri and his family was interviewed in his ancestral village of Billia in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

They have retreated there to grieve away from their Delhi home – a place that will constantly remind them of the barbaric sexual attack. Jyoti Singh Pandey, 23, was subjected to when she and a male friend were lured on to a bus.

Badri’s wishes asked the media not to picture her. Releasing a photo of her is for another day.

Indian law prohibits naming a rape victim unless she authorizes it or, if she is dead, her family agrees to it.

At the moment it is enough for the devastated family to sanction the release to the world of their precious daughter’s name. Jyoti-Singh-Pandey-indian-rape-victim.jpg
