The male friend of a girl who was gangraped on a moving bus could not be cross examined on Thursday in the fast-track court by the lawyers of the five accused in the murder case as the defence wanted his interview to a news channel to be brought on record as crucial evidence.

He is the sole eyewitness to the brutal assault and gangrape of the 23-year-old girl, who can not be named due to legal reasons.
