One of the Delhi bus rapists has said his dead victim was to blame for the rape because 'decent girls don't roam around at 9pm'.

Mukesh Singh claims he was driving the bus when a 23-year-old physiotherapy student was violated with metal bars as she travelled home from the cinema with a male friend.

She suffered horrific internal injuries and died two weeks after the attack that shook India and sparked a wave of protests.

But Singh has shocked people by saying 'girls are far more responsible for rape' during an interview with the BBC as he awaits execution.

He said: 'A decent girl won't roam around at nine o'clock at night. A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boys and girls are not equal.

'Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes.

'About 20 per cent of girls are good.'

He added: 'When raped, she shouldn't fight back.

'She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they'd have dropped her off after doing her and only hit the boy.'

Singh claims he did not take part in the attack but has been convicted of gang rape along with five others.

BBC Four is airing a documentary on the rape and its impact on March 8.
