The prosecution on Tuesday may examine the survivor as well as a few crucial witnesses in connection with the August 22 Shakti Mills gang-rape case.
The survivor, who is also the complainant in the case, would be the fourth witness to be examined by the prosecution and cross-examined by the defence counsel.
Meanwhile, the first three primary witnesses (panch witnesses) were examined as well as cross-examined on Monday before the special court presided over by judge Shalini Phansalkar Joshi.
Speaking to dna, special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said, “Today, the prosecution produced their first three witnesses in the case. The first witness was S Kanwade, an interior designer who had visited the spot and made a sketch of the entire dilapidated structure and explained the topography of the area. The other two witnesses, Bhaskar Patil and Nitin Salia, were police panchas.” The witnesses were also examined by the defence counsels.
When dna asked about the next set of witnesses, Nikam said, “We are likely to examine the victim, who is also the complainant in the case, along with a few more crucial witnesses.”
The survivor, a photo journalist, was allegedly gang-raped by five men on the mill premises on August 22.
