Two forensic experts, who had provided scientific support and services in the probe into the December 16 gang rape case, were cross-examined by the defence counsel in a Delhi court.

BK Mohapatra, senior scientific officer, and Rajender Singh, a principal scientific officer who is also an assistant chemical examiner, were cross-examined. Both work at the Central Forensic Science Laboratory.

The statement of both the experts were recorded by Additional Sessions Judge (Fast Track Court) Yogesh Khanna during in-camera proceedings.

Two other witnesses - Rashmi Ahuja from Safdarjung Hospital and Delhi Police head constable Giri Raj who took accused Pawan Gupta for medical examination - also testified as prosecution witnesses.

Ahuja had initially prepared Medico Legal Case (MLC) of the victim, describing her wounds and injuries caused during the commission of the crime.

The proceedings against main accused Ram Singh have abated after his death in Tihar jail.
