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 Paul Chui, senior consultant (forensic pathology), Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Singapore.

Chui’s examination concluded on Monday after he was cross-examined by the counsel appearing for the five accused.

The court, which is hearing in-camera proceedings in the case on day-to-day basis, has fixed Tuesday 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 from Safdarjung hospital after 10 days of the incident.

The girl, however, had died on December 29, 2012.
