A young Indian woman who died after being gang-raped on a bus has been cremated in the capital, Delhi.
The ceremony came hours after an aircraft chartered by the Indian government brought the woman's body back to the city.
The 23-year-old medical student died in a Singapore hospital where she was being treated for severe injuries.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was at Indira Gandhi International Airport for the arrival of the plane when it landed on Sunday, AFP news agency reported, quoting security sources.
Witnesses said a convoy carrying a gold-coloured coffin and the victim's parents then drove towards the Janakpuri district of Delhi where she had been living.
The BBC reports the private funeral was held amid tight security.
Thousands of people took part in candlelit vigils for the unnamed woman who has been the focus of a wave of protests ever since she was savagely attacked by a gang of men on a bus two weeks ago.
As police said the six accused of murdering her could face the death penalty, Mr Singh led appeals for calm to prevent a repeat of the sometimes violent protests that followed the 16 December assault.
Thousands took part in fresh demonstrations on Saturday but they passed off peacefully as mourners vowed the student's killing would serve as a tipping point for how the nation deals with violence against women.
Doctors who had been treating her at Singapore's Mount Elizabeth Hospital after she was airlifted there on Thursday were unable to prevent multiple organ failure and she died before dawn on Saturday.
Gang-rapes are a daily occurrence in India and many go unreported by victims who have little faith in an often painfully slow justice system and are deterred by the response they can receive from male police officers.
But the particularly savage nature of the attack in Delhi has brought simmering anger to a boiling point and prompted the government to promise better security for women and harsher sentences for sex crimes.
After being lured onto a bus, the student was attacked by the men who took turns raping her and assaulted her with an iron bar before throwing her and her male companion off the moving vehicle.
As crowds mourned the student's death, the Press Trust of India reported a new series of sex attacks, including the gang-rape of a 14-year-old girl who then tried to commit suicide by swallowing poison in Gujarat state.
And an 18-year-old rape victim committed suicide in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh after police allegedly failed to take action against the accused.
