Meanwhile, Neelam Katara, mother of the victim moved an application before the court, opposing the allegation made by the accused that his statement at a city hospital was influenced by her and he was not provided with proper medical care.

The court also put her application for consideration on the next date of hearing.
Earlier, in the beginning of hearing, the court had declined to adjourn the matter when the defence contended that Vikas was exhausted and was suffering with fatigue.

The defence also referred the medical report of AIIMS where Vikas was taken for check-up on Tuesday. The hospital had reportedly prescribed a few check-ups on him.
