Doctors say the internal bleeding which is because of sepsis, a severe blood infection that can lead to organ failure, remains a cause of “major concern” as far as the girl's health is concerned.

The 23-year-old gang-rape survivor continues to be critical and remains on ventilator support, doctors said on Tuesday.

Doctors at the Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi, where she was rushed to after being raped and brutally assaulted in a moving bus on December 16, had on Monday said her condition was “very serious and very critical”.

“Her condition continues to be critical today as well,” they said.

On Monday, the victim had shown some tendency for internal bleeding, but her platelet count has increased to 70,000 from Sunday's 19,000. A normal platelet count in a healthy individual is between 150,000 and 450,000 per micro-litre of blood.

Doctors say the bleeding which is because of sepsis, a severe blood infection that can lead to organ failure, remains a cause of “major concern” as far as the girl's health is concerned.
