Washington: The father of the woman, whose rape and fatal beating provoked outrage across India and the world, has asserted that his daughter's brutal death has brought an awakening of society.

The woman's father told the British television network ITV, that society can no longer turn a blind eye to these sorts of incidents, which are happening every day, CNN reported.

He also said that people have to change themselves, and if there are no changes, then these horrible things won't stop.

The slain student's father, who earlier said he hoped any new law inspired by the attack-or perhaps a hospital-would bear his daughter's name, asserted that the public has to wake up now.
