Cuttack, Nov. 8: The court of the district and sessions judge, Cuttack, will resume trial proceedings in the nun gangrape case tomorrow because the cross examination of the victim by the defence counsel remained incomplete.
The statement of the 30-year-old Catholic nun, who was allegedly gangraped more than two years ago, was recorded by the prosecution on November 3.
During the trial proceedings on camera before the district and sessions judge B.K. Mishra today, the defence, led by advocate Sauri Mohapatra, during cross examination mostly came up with queries related to the area in which the victim worked and to what extent she knew the local people. No questions were asked related to the rape, court sources said.
Earlier, the nun had repeated the statement made by her to the police. Apart from narrating the alleged incident, which took place at Nuagaon under Baliguda police station limits in Kandhmal district on August 25, 2008, the victim reportedly identified two persons whom she had earlier identified during a test identification parade.
The nun had also reportedly identified three persons who were present in the mob during the alleged gangrape, court sources added.
