In resumed hearing in the Jyoti murder case, three experts who recorded their statements before the court supported prosecution evidence on Tuesday. Doon (Himachal Pradesh) MLA Ram Kumar Chaudhary is the prime accused in the case.

Chemical examiner from Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), Madhuban, Dr RK Mehla had given the report that alcohol was not found in Jyoti's body which implied that she did not consume liquor on the night of murder. But as per the police, accused Chaudhary had disclosed to the police that liquor was offered to her, which she drank, before killing her.

Mehla told the court on Tuesday that if a 55-kg person drank 30 ml alcohol, it would not be detected after three hours. When he was asked about intake of 200 ml, he said it would remain in body till 21 hours.

Handwriting expert Dr Kanta Malik told the court that writing on Jyoti's abortion form was that of Chaudhary.

Though the characters of overwriting on the form did not match with his writing samples, she told the court that they had asked for overwriting samples of Chaudhary which the police did not provide.

'Ram Kumar' written on Jyoti's mobile phone was also sent for matching handwriting samples. Malik told the court that the writing matched with that of Chaudhary.

Defence counsel AS Sukhija raised the issue of different IMEI number on the sticker pasted on the mobile phone than actual.

Dr Rachnit Kohli from the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS), Rohtak, who examined the uterus of the victim, told the court that there was nothing abnormal about it.

Jyoti, 24, was found dead on a road in Sector 21, Panchkula, on November 22, 2012.
