SINGAPORE: An official says a young woman who was gang-raped and brutally beaten on a moving bus in the Indian capital has been flown to Singapore for treatment for severe internal injuries.    

The Indian High Commission, or embassy, official said the woman arrived on Thursday morning from New Delhi. The official cannot be named because of embassy rules. The official said more details will be released later.

The Dec 16 rape of the woman, who is still in a critical condition, triggered widespread protests in New Delhi and other parts of the country. Demonstrations in the heart of New Delhi were frequently been quelled by police tear gas and water cannons, and one policeman died in clashes with the mobs.

All six suspects in the case have been arrested.
