"My heart goes out to the family of the young girl and millions of young Indians, families who work, hope and pray for a better India. We as a nation must reflect on the events of the days gone by," Rahul said, offering his deep condolences to the young girl's family.

As citizens, we must resolve to respect the dignity of women and follow the laws of the land, he said.

"I join my mother and sister in offering deep felt condolences to the young girl's family, My thoughts and prayers are with the family," Rahul said in his message.

The girl, who was gang-raped by six men in a moving bus in south Delhi on December 16, breathed her last in a Singapore hospital early this morning after battling for life for the past 13 days.
