The counsel for accused Vinay Sharma said that the 23 year old victim died here due to medical negligence.
However, doctors were quick to defend the allegation. "It is wrong to suggest that the victim had died in India due to the alleged negligence of the team of doctors treating her. It is wrong to suggest that the dead body of the victim was transported outside India, because of public agitation and pressure," one of the doctors told Additional Session Judge Yogesh Khanna.
The counsel appearing for other accused Pawan and Akshay Thakur also alleged that victim, who was gang-raped by six men in the moving bus, was not shifted to Singapore for organ transplant or best possible medical care but because she had died here in India and the government did not want the public to know it.
The gangrape occurred in a moving bus here on the night of December 16. A 23-year-old medical student was brutally gangraped and assaulted by a group of men after she and her male friend took a lift in the bus to get home. The woman died on December 29.
