New Delhi, Jan 18 (IANS) Delhi Police on Monday filed a plea in a court here seeking to recall two prosecution witnesses in a case of rape of a Danish woman.
Special Public Prosecutor Atul Shrivastava filed an application before Additional Sessions Judge Kaveri Baweja and requested her to grant permission to recall two prosecution witnesses — then station house officer of Paharganj police station Raj Kumar, and Sub-Inspector Anand. The court posted the matter for Tuesday.

Arjun, Raju alias Chhakka, Mohammad Raja, Mahendra alias Ganja, Raju alias Bajji and Shyam Lal have been charged with robbing and raping the Danish woman at knife-point near the New Delhi Railway Station in January 2014 after she sought directions to her hotel in Paharganj.
