New Delhi: Doctors who examined the accused in the Delhi gang rape case will testify in court on Friday, said reports.

Earlier, the prosecution had called the 23-year-old victim's software engineer friend to testify in court. He was accompanying the victim on December 16 last year, when the attack took place.

He was also assaulted and is still unable to walk properly.

The friend was also cross-examined by the defence lawyers in court.

The trial is being held in-camera, which refrains the media from reporting the day to day proceedings in detail.

The Delhi Police, meanwhile, filed a supplementary chargesheet in the case. It included the victim's autopsy report from the Singapore hospital where she died on Dec 29.

Before her death, the victim had recorded her statement. That would be crucial evidence in the case.

The Delhi gangrape victim's father had earlier said he wanted death penalty for all the six accused in the case.

"I only want that all six people should be hanged," the victim's father told media.

The five suspects had pleaded not guilty to the charges read out to them. They could face death penalty, if convicted.

The sixth accused, a juvenile, is being tried by juvenile justice board. He faces a maximum punishment of three years in a reform facility.

The police has said he was the most brutal among the assaulters.

The girl's death sparked national outrage and protests on the lack of security for women in India.
