CUTTACK: The Orissa High Court on Wednesday said the SCB Medical College and Hospital could avail of the services of a neuro surgeon, who was working at National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), Bangalore, for expert opinion for the treatment of the Pipili gangrape victim.

 Accordingly, the hospital authorities have decided to seek the opinion of Dr Bhabani Shankar Das, the expert, on Thursday. Das now lives in Cuttack.

 Earlier, the Superintendent of the medical college and hospital submitted the status report on the girl’s health condition before the division bench of the HC comprising Chief Justice V Gopala Gowda and Justice BN Mohapatra. The bench was hopeful that best treatment will be offered to the victim and also said the opinion of the expert from NIMHANS may also be availed of, if required.

 The Crime Branch also submitted its status report before the court. The investigating agency has extended the remand of main accused Prashant Pradhan for three days while securing the custody of Premanand Nayak for two days. Nayak was produced before the Pipili court earlier on Wednesday. However, the third accused Guna Swain was sent back to judicial custody.

 The Pipili tehsildar also filed an affidavit along with a photostat copy of the report of the process server serving notice on Babuli Behera, father of the victim.
