A Singapore-based doctor, who analysed the slides containing samples of cells and tissue of the December 16 gangrape victim, testified on Tuesday as a witness for the prosecution through video conferencing in a fast track court.

Additional sessions judge Yogesh Khanna, who is heading the fast track court set up to try cases of sexual offences, recorded the statement of Dr Anjula Thomas, medical director and consultant pathologist at Park Way Laboratory Services Ltd.

The recording of Thomas' statement and her cross examination by the counsel for five accused was completed in proceedings, which lasted a little over an hour.

She had prepared the histopathology report after analysis of the tissue samples of the victim. Histopathology refers to the microscopic examination of tissue in order to study the manifestations of disease.

The court, which is hearing in-camera proceedings in the case on a day-to-day basis, has fixed tomorrow for recording of evidence of another doctor, who had treated the girl at the Singapore hospital.

The victim was airlifted to Mount Elizabeth Hospital on December 27, 2012 for further treatment on the advice of a team of doctors of Safdarjung Hospital, 10 days after the incident took place.
