'Doctor unreliable as witness in Aarushi case'

In the Aarushi-Hemraj double murder case, the defence on Wednesday claimed in a court here that a doctor presented by the CBI as a witness was not reliable.

Doctor Sunil Kumar Dohre, who conducted the post-mortem on Aarushi, was cross-examined by the defence before CBI special judge S Lal.

The defence alleged that the CBI witness was unreliable because there were variations in his statement before CBI and the statement in court.

The court would next hear the case on July 31.

Defence lawyer Manoj Shishodia claimed that Dohre, who mentioned that no abnormality was detected in the genital condition of the victim, said in his testimony in court that the victim’s vaginal portion was abnormal in size.

After the questions from the defence, the doctor admitted that it was an error.

In the post mortem report, the doctor did not mention which weapon was used in the crime, the defence said.

But an eight-member team of doctors, including Dohre, later observed that a curved knife could have been used in the crime, the defence said.

When the CBI later insisted whether the wound could have been inflicted with a golf club, the doctor said since a golf club was also a blunt weapon, it could have been the weapon of offence.
