Mumbai: The gang rape of a 23-year-old paramedical student almost 10 days ago in the national capital has shaken one and all. The gruesome incident has led to a nation-wide uproar and has left the state in total disarray since then.

Celebrities from all walks of life have also been voicing their opinion about the heinous crime and demanding immediate action against the culprits. But Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has one more concern to express.

The 70-year-old actor took to his Facebook account to slam media coverage of the medical condition of the rape survivor. He wrote, “Lot of debate and discussion and comment on the media coverage of patient Delhi Gangrape, being shifted in ambulance to another location ... patient privacy is an important element in the Constitutional Journals of Medical Ethics."

The 23-year-old girl was airlifted to Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth hospital for further treatment.
