‘Speaking to ITV1′s Daybreak, Mr Singh said: ’When we went to Singapore she was not conscious but she had tears in her eyes. Then I realised she was in a really bad state.
‘I couldn’t think what to do at that time, I was like a bird without wings, I was neither here nor there.
‘So when I thought she might get better, I used to get filled with some hope. When I was told that she might not get well and might have to have an operation I felt uncomfortable.
‘It was difficult for me, but when she was put on a ventilator it gave me some hope that she would get better. I thought she might get better and she would live.’
Mr Singh said that his daughter’s death 13 days after the horrific attack has ‘brought an awakening’ to Indian society and called for his country to no longer turn a blind eye to attacks on women.
He added that he would like to see a new law or a hospital named after his daughter.
Describing his daughter, Mr Singh said: ‘When she was born my aunties and uncles always used to carry her around, those were really lovely days.
‘Right from the start her ambition was to be a doctor. Her main aim was that our family wouldn’t have to suffer any more, she wanted to put the difficult life behind us, wipe out our poverty.
‘She also wanted to make sure I didn’t have to keep working hard late in life.’

………Mr Sharma said that he would contest Indian police‘s handling of evidence after prosecutors claimed to have forensic evidence which links the men to the attack.
A 17-year-old who is also accused of the woman’s rape and murder will appear at a youth court separately.
Meanwhile, the victim’s companion on the night of the attack, 28-year-old software engineer Awindra Pandey, has spoken out about the terrible ordeal and his friend’s horrific injuries.
He told The Times that his efforts to flag down help from passing motorists after the pair had been dumped in the road were ignored for 20 minutes.
Mr Pandey said that police were reluctant to help his friend despite her injuries.
‘She was asking for water and complaining of pain in her stomach,’ he said.
‘She was bleeding heavily. They (the police) asked me to put her in the van.’
He said that the pair, who were not dating, had been to a cinema in the city to see Life of Pi but were unable to persuade a rickshaw driver to take them all the way back to the Dwarka suburb where the woman lived with her parents.
They were dropped halfway home, when a phone call from her mother asking her to hurry home prompted them to board an illegal bus with blacked out windows.
Mr Pandey confronted other passengers when they began insulting the pair but they soon produced iron rods, he said.
He said that he was beaten and fell to the floor of the bus.
