New Delhi, Jan 19 (IANS) Delhi Police on Tuesday moved an application in a court here, urging it to take on record the medical and potency test report of an accused in the criminal case of rape of a Danish woman.
Additional public prosecutor Atul Shrivastava moved an application before Additional Sessions Judge Kaveri Baweja, requesting her to take on record the medical and potency test report of accused Shyam Lal alias Bhajni, which will help in supporting the prosecution case.
The court directed defence counsel to file the reply by January 21.
The prosecutor told the court that the medical report could not be placed earlier as it was misplaced and police traced it only on Tuesday morning.
Meanwhile, the court recorded the statements of prosecution witnesses and forensic science laboratory doctor S. Paliwal, who was recalled for examination.
Arjun, Raju alias Chhakka, Mohammad Raja, Mahendra alias Ganja, Raju alias Bajji and Shyam Lal alias Bhajni have been charged with robbing and raping the Danish woman at knife-point near the New Delhi Railway Station in January 2014 after she sought directions to her hotel in Paharganj.
Three minors — also allegedly involved in the case — are facing an inquiry before the Juvenile Justice Board.
Police said all the accused were vagabonds who took the woman to an isolated spot near the Divisional Railway Officers’ Club close to the railway station, took away her belongings and then raped her.
