New Delhi/IBNS: A 19-year old gangrape survivor from Uttar Pradesh's Hathras succumbed to her injuries at a hospital in the national capital on Tuesday, media reports said.

The victim died at Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital two weeks after she was gangraped by four men in her village.

The girl was left paralysed with a spinal cord injury by the accused while her tongue was found cut.

The incident has sparked outrage with people demanding justice for the girl while politicians have targeted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for the alleged deteriorating law and order situation in his state.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tweeted in the morning, "The Dalit rape victim from Hathras has died in the hospital. She was fighting for her life in hospital for two weeks. A number of rape incidents in Uttar Pradesh has shaken the state."

"The law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh has deteriorated beyond limits. There is no safety for women. Crime is taking place openly in the state. The murderers of this girl need to be punished strictly. Yogi Adityanath should answer for the safety issues of women."

Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati tweeted, "The death of the Hathras gangrape survivor is saddening. BSP demands support for the deceased's family from the state government and the guilty must be punished by running the case in fast track court."

".... there is no hope from today's insensitive government," tweeted other former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
