A local court here has directed the prosecution to record the evidence of witnesses in the death case of 13-year-old girl who was allegedly molested and thrown off a moving bus in Moga, on December 11.
Additional Sessions Judge Gurjant Singh on Saturday gave the direction on Saturday after no one turned up on the day for recording of evidence of witness including the members of the aggrieved family.
The Court has already framed charges against four persons including bus driver, conductor and helpers under various sections of the IPC and the SC/ST Act.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court had earlier directed to put the case on fast track for trial but refused to hand it over to the CBI as the trial had already begun in the sessions court.
A woman and her teenaged daughter were allegedly molested and thrown off a running bus, leaving the girl dead and mother seriously wounded.
The shocking incident occurred on April 29 close to Gill village on Moga-Kotkapura road, about 10 km from Moga district headquarters.
