Mumbai : Two witnesses, including mother of the photojournalist who was allegedly gangraped in the Shakti Mill compound on August 22, deposed before a sessions court on the second day of the trial on Tuesday.
Another witness to record her statement before the court was a senior colleague of the 23-year-old victim, an intern with an English magazine. The victim is likely to depose before court on Thursday. “She (the victim’s mother) deposed for two hours in the court and wept through out her deposition. She has stood by her statement given to police,” said special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam. The deposition of the victim’s mother was held in-camera following her request to the Principal Judge Shalini Phansalkar-Joshi. An 18-yr-old was also raped earlier by five men, three of whom are allegedly involved in August 22 gangrape. -PTI
