A 22-year-old nurse, who was raped and her eye gauged out by a ward boy, has rejected the rapist's offer to marry her.

The girl has demanded that the accused be hanged to death.

The girl was raped on December 7, 2003 at the Shanti Mukund Hospital in east Delhi.

A Delhi court is scheduled to pronounce its verdict in the case on Wednesday.

The accused had moved an application on Tuesday offering to marry the girl and the court had asked the girl and her parents to file a reply.

The victim in television interviews rejected the offer and said the accused be punished so that people think twice before harming any girl.
