Stating that the Delhi Police had enough evidence to prove that the accused in the December 16 gangrape case were guilty and the evidence produced by the defence was vague,the prosecution on Monday concluded its final arguments before Additional Sessions Judge Yogesh Khanna. The counsel for the accused will start final arguments from Tuesday.

Appearing for Delhi Police,Special Public Prosecutor Dayan Krishnan said the evidence produced on behalf of the accused had been imagined and introduced and the statements of defence witnesses were inconsistent. He said the evidence had been fabricated.

“I have placed a comprehensive case for the prosecution. I have traced the entire incident and proved the route of the bus,the presence of the accused in the vehicle,the rods that were used in the crime and the spot where the victims were dumped,all supported by electronic and scientific evidence,” Krishnan said.

He added that the DNA report also established that blood stains on the clothes of the accused,matched with that of the girl proving that the accused had raped her. “The scientific evidence not only includes the DNA report,but also the report of the fingerprints and the bite mark which matched with Akshay’s dental mode,proves the accused guilty,” he said.

Further proving his point,he told the court that Mukesh had himself admitted that he was driving the bus but had done nothing and did not know what others did with the victims at the back of the vehicle.

Krishnan said that by giving this statement,Mukesh was trying to get out of his liability,although the medical evidence shows that he was a participant in the crime.

Krishnan added that Mukesh and the other accused were on the road to pursue a plan and targeted the victim for the purpose of loot and satisfy their sexual desires.

Krishnan further argued that there is inherent contradiction in the statements of the defence witnesses,which proves that they fabricated it during the trial.

“While one of the defence witnesses had said that the function at the DDA park (where Vinay claimed to be present on the day of crime according to the defence counsel) was organised by a church,the church claimed that they had a big enough space inside to hold a function and they never held any function outside church premises,” he said.

Stating that Vinay was lying by saying that his phone was not with him after 9 pm on the day of the incident,and one Vipin had taken it from him,Krishnan showed the Call Detail Records of his phone to the judge. He showed that Vinay made several calls to a number throughout the day,his last call being at 8.19 pm.

“After this,he made a call at 9.55 pm,which proves that he did not make any call during the commission of crime. It was also found that all the calls were made from the same phone and the same SIM card. However,initially,Vinay had claimed that Vipin took his phone and when he returned it the next morning,it did not have a SIM card. On one hand,your phone is found in Mahilpalpur,when you are supposed to be at a function in DDA park. there are a lot of contradictions,” he said.
