"It is wrong to suggest that all the accused persons were falsely implicated in the case," the IO, who had initially probed the case, told additional sessions judge Yogesh Khanna.

She refuted the allegation that accused Vinay Sharma was a juvenile at the time of the incident or that he had shown her clippings of a function which he attended on December 16, 2012 night, when the gang rape took place.

The officer also denied the allegation that accused Akshay Singh was falsely implicated in the case as he was not present when the crime took place.
