Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said he is "deeply saddened" by the woman's death. He said the emotions the case has generated are "perfectly understandable."
The woman's body was set to be flown back to India Saturday.
The woman is reported to have been traveling with a male companion on a charter bus in New Delhi when the six men on board beat them both with an iron rod. The woman was raped repeatedly. Reports say a rod was used in the rape, causing some of her internal injuries. She also suffered brain injuries. The woman and her friend were thrown from the moving vehicle.
The male friend survived the attack. Neither the woman nor her friend has been identified.
Many rapes in India go unreported. India's government has been criticized for being slow to understand the outrage that followed the incident, in a country where crimes against women are growing, and where police figures show that rape is among the fastest growing crimes.
