True. It is as good an explanation of Savita's death as saying it was through lack of legislation for X case.You're right, nobody knows until there is a public inquiry.
However, you were pretty definitive in your statement:
"Calmer heads have found that the late administration of antibiotics caused Savita's death"
Don't expect any reply from all the people who were so anxious to tell India how much they agreed with the hysterical abuse we got from those quarters... http://www.politics.ie/forum/cultur...ation-approval-please-help-me-understand.html
India sex attack: Woman leaps through window to avoid assault - Independent.ieThe Indian government has been under intense pressure to curb the violence. Last week, ministers came under fire after passing a law intended to crack down on sexual assaults, but which failed to make marital rape a criminal offence.
Today, the FCO updated its advice for travellers to India. Women in particular were urged to use caution: "Reported cases of sexual assault against women and young girls are increasing; recent sexual attacks against female visitors in tourist areas and cities show that foreign women are also at risk.
"British women have been the victims of sexual assault in Goa, Delhi, Bangalore and Rajasthan and women travellers often receive unwanted attention in the form of verbal and physical harassment by individuals or groups of men.
"A Swiss national suffered a serious sexual attack in Madyha Pradesh on 16 March. Women travellers should exercise caution when travelling in India even if they are travelling in a group.
"If you are a woman travelling in India you should respect local dress codes and customs and avoid isolated areas, including beaches, when alone at any time of day."
