The father of the Delhi gangrape victim on Sunday night appealed to the protesters to stop the vandalism and help the police in bringing the culprits to justice at the earliest.
He also appealed to the people to pray for his 23-year-old daughter, who is fighting for her life at a city hospital.
"My daughter is stable now. She is conscious. I appeal to all to refrain from vandalism and help the police so that the process of capturing and sentencing the culprits is successful," he told a TV news channel.
The victim's father said his daughter continued to fight for her life.
"The capability to live and fight on is still the same in my daughter. Please pray to God that my daughter recovers. Vandalism will do no good. I appeal to you, please don't cause any damage so that both you and I can carry on in peace. No words can describe how brave my girl is," he said
