The crime branch which took up the case after over seven weeks of the reported incident had requisitioned the services of AIIMS doctors comprising forensic and medicine toxicology and gynaecology experts having knowledge of DNA studies.

The experts team had examined the victim at SCB Medical College Hospital, Cuttack late last month before making an on the spot visit to the girl's native village at Arjungoda in Pipili of Puri district.

The superintendent of SCB Medical College and Hospital submitted a health status report of the rape victim to the high court stating that there has been no significant improvement in her condition.

A team of doctors drawn from at least five departments is keeping a close watch of the girl who is now in the intensive care unit.
