New Delhi, Feb 24 (IANS) Security in and around Safdarjung Hospital, where the Delhi gang-rape victim was treated about two months ago, will get tighter with the opening of a police post in the hospital premises Monday, an official said.

"The police post will be inaugurated to tighten vigil around the hospital area," a police official told IANS Sunday.

The police post will be inaugurated Monday morning by Joint Commissioner of Police (Southwest) Vivek Gogia, the official said.

A 23-year-old trainee physiotherapist, who was brutally gang-raped on a moving bus Dec 16, 2012, was admitted to the hospital soon after the incident. She was later shifted to a Singapore hospital where she died Dec 29, 2012.
