Defence lawyers in the Delhi gangrape case on Wednesday began cross- examination of the key eyewitness and co-victim of the incident at the fast-track court in the Saket Court Complex here.

The cross-examination came after the male friend of the deceased victim, who is the chief prosecution witness, had on Tuesday identified the bus on which the gruesome crime took place on December 16, and also the five accused.

"During the cross-examination, we highlight those points, which the police have not revealed. We bring it to the fore, whatever the police hide, and that is our defence. The star witness, who is also the complainant in the case, mentioned and admitted to certain things during his interviews and we will see what he says over here," said A. P. Singh, a defence lawyer.

"The court has been adjourned till tomorrow, so that we can respond to the application. After the reply, there will be an argument, then the prosecution will provide evidences," he added.

The sixth accused in the case is being tried separately as a juvenile.

The 23-year-old medical student died in a Singapore hospital on December 29 from massive internal injuries she sustained during the gangrape and torture on December 16 in South Delhi area. (ANI)
