Judge Lau visited the spot from where the a call was made to the police control room by the father of the victim, the house of the victim’s maternal uncle and a place from where she was allegedly kidnapped before the gangrape.

“No site plan (rough or scaled) has been placed on record either by the prosecution or by the defence on the basis of which the said controversy can be determined and decided,” said the court Wednesday.

Defence counsel and also the public prosecutor suggested that a visit to the spot could help adjudicate the issue.
