He said blood stains on Aarushi`s clothes and mattress were her own. He was recording his statement as the sixth prosecution witness.
He appeared before the court around 10:30 a.m. and recorded his statement till 2 p.m. His statement would be recorded Wednesday also.
Manoj Shishodia, one of the defence lawyers, said after the recording of Mahapatra`s statement the defence would be given a chance to cross-examine him.
