Two Safdarjung Hospital doctors, who were part of the team that treated last year`s Dec 16 gang-rape victim, testified in a Delhi court Tuesday. They were also cross-examined by defence counsel.
He will be cross-examined by counsel for accused bus driver Ram Singh and co-accused Mukesh, Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta and Akshay Singh.

The court has prepared a list of 39 prosecution witnesses, including the victim`s male friend for examining them by Feb 22.

The fast track court started day-to-day trial in the case after it framed charges of murder, gang-rape and kidnapping, among others, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against five of the six accused.

The case of the sixth accused, a minor, is being heard by the Juvenile Justice Board.

The court had earlier restricted media from reporting the proceedings in the case and ordered in-camera trial.

The 23-year-old trainee physiotherapist died Dec 29 in a Singapore hospital.
