The 22-year-old photojournalist who was gangraped by five men inside Shakti Mills on August 22 was composed Friday as she completed her deposition in the sessions court,said special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam. The victim wept and fainted in court while answering questions Thursday.
The prosecution continued with the examination in the first half of the day and defence lawyers cross-examined her post-lunch. The court arranged for a loudspeaker as the victim spoke in a low voice. Though her mother accompanied her to the court,she stayed in another room,adjacent to the courtroom,during the in-camera proceedings.
The woman had on Thursday identified all four accused – Vijay Jadhav (18),Siraj Khan (24),Mohammad Kasim Shaikh (20),Mohammad Salim Ansari (27). The fifth is a juvenile and is being tried before the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB).
