New Delhi: The 23-year-old gang rape victim may be taken abroad for medical treatment if needed, Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said on Thursday.

"Her condition is very critical, she has a lot of injuries but if there is a need to take her abroad to treat her and save her life, we will not hesitate," Dikshit told reporters here.

The woman, gang raped and savaged four days ago, was conscious and in stable condition but there was danger of infection setting in, said doctors treating her at Safdarjung Hospital.

The victim, who was interning as a physiotherapist at a hospital here, had her intestines removed in a two-hour surgery on Wednesday.

She was brutally assaulted in a running bus after she boarded it in south Delhi on Sunday night.  Her male friend who tried to save her was also beaten by the rapists.

Both were dumped by the roadside after some 40 minutes. Police have arrested four of the six suspects.
