A Fast Track court here, holding the trial in a gang rape committed during the 2013 riots in the district, on Friday examined a prosecution witness in the case.

Additional Sessions Judge Ankur Sharma examined witness Naseem who supported the prosecution version in the case.

After examining the witness, the court fixed December 5 for the deposition by two remaining witnesses in the case.

The court has already recorded the deposition by three other witnesses, including the gang rape victim, who had allegedly been raped by three men on September 8, 2013 amid the communal riots in the district.

During her deposition earlier, the prosecutrix had reiterated her allegation that she was raped by three men Kuldeep, Maheshvar and Sikander at gun point in a sugarcane field in her village, where she had hidden herself to escape from rioters.

She had also deposed that she was threatened with the dire consequences by the trio.
