NEW DELHI, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- The father of the Delhi gang-rape victim Sunday denied that he allowed his daughter to be identified after a British paper revealed her name, reported local daily Hindustan Times.
The newspaper quoted him as saying that her identity should be made public only if a law was named after her.
The London-based Sunday People, the Daily Mirror's Sunday edition, quoted the father as saying, "We want the world to know her real name. My daughter didn't do anything wrong, she died while protecting herself. I am proud of her."
The tabloid, which put his picture and that of his family on its website, interviewed him in his ancestral village in Ballia in Uttar Pradesh in northern India.
Local media only identified the 23-year-old medical student with a generic name such as Nirbuaya and Damini. Indian law does not allow revelation of rape victims.
