An Indian woman who was set on fire on her way to testify against her alleged rapists has died of her injuries.
The 23-year-old died late on Friday after suffering cardiac arrest at a Delhi hospital. She had 90% burns.
She was attacked on Thursday as she was walking to a hearing in the rape case she filed against two men in March in Unnao, in northern Uttar Pradesh state.
Five men, including the alleged rapists, have been arrested, Indian police say.
The sister of the victim, whose name has not been released, told the BBC that she wanted the death penalty for the pair.
