Indian Nurse Dies Four Decades After Being Sodomized and Left in a Coma

A 66-year-old Indian nurse, who was sexually assaulted and left in a vegetative state for more than 40 years, died on Monday, in a case that sparked national debate over the legalization of euthanasia. In November 1973, Aruna Shanbaug was attacked by a ward attendant at the King Edward Memorial Hospital in Mumbai as the 26-year-old nurse was finishing her night-shift.
