The condition of the Dec 16 gang-rape victim has worsened due to internal bleeding but her vital parameters remain stable, doctors said Monday.

"Her condition is bad and serious compared to yesterday (Sunday) due to internal bleeding," P.K. Verma, ICU in-charge at the Safdarjung Hospital, told reporters.

Verma said the good part is that despite internal bleeding, her white blood cell count and platelet count remain stable.

"She continues to be critical but her kidneys are making urine and lungs are fine. She is conscious and communicating," he said.

Verma said that internal bleeding was due to infection and fresh blood plasma was injected. - IANS
