The father of a 23-year-old student who died after being gang raped on a bus in India says he wants her name to be made public to help other sexual assault victims.
"My daughter didn't do anything wrong, she died while protecting herself," the father told Britain’s Sunday People newspaper, according to Reuters. “Revealing her name will give courage to other women who have survived these attacks. They will find strength from my daughter."

733 rapes in 2011

Haryana, India (CNN) -- She's just 16 years old and one month ago was about to sit her final-year exams when she says she was shoved into a car and gang-raped by eight men in a small village in the Indian state of Haryana.
I remember being driven by the canal, all the guys were standing there then four more boys came on a motorbike," said the teenager, who had been hoping to be the first female high school graduate in her family.

"There were approximately 12 men. Eight men raped me, they then fed me a pill, they filmed the whole thing and left."
The teenager kept her ordeal secret for 10 days before her mother noticed something was wrong.
"She would just lie in bed all day, she wouldn't talk, she wouldn't eat, I thought she was ill. Those rapists had threatened to kill our family and show the video to the entire village if she opened her mouth," she said.




The 16-year-old's mother also remained silent.
"People told me to forget about what had happened. They said this is a matter of your daughter's reputation. Who will marry her if people find out she was raped? Let it be, don't make a big deal," she said.
