As the 23-year-old girl, who was brutally gang-raped four days back, battles for life in a city hospital, chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Thursday said both central and Delhi governments will take her to any part of the globe for better treatment when her condition improves.


"We are ready to take her to any part of the world for better treatment. But to take her abroad, her condition has to improve as she is in a very critical condition," Dikshit said told reporters in New Delhi.

"Her condition remains critical as she sustained grievous internal injuries. To take her abroad is not only the Delhi government's offer but the Centre also wants to do anything possible for her," she said.

Doctors treating the girl at the Safdurjung hospital said her condition remains critical but stable.

Meanwhile, outrage and anger continue to erupt in the city with angry students holding demonstrations in several places including India Gate and outside Dikshit's residence at 3 Motilal Nehru Road.

Dikshit on Thursday announced slew of measures aimed at improving security for women which include setting up of a round-the-clock control room for women in distress.
