The forensic expert who was examined by the prosecution last month also said during the cross-examination by the defence lawyers that he could not scientifically say that the explosives were kept beneath the bike’s seat. Pragya Thakur’s bike may have exploded accidentally says forensic experts. The prosecution last month examined the forensic expert who studied the scene of the offence, bike and other articles from the spot. The defence has alleged that the police planted the articles on the spot.
During the cross-examination by the defence, the witness said, “It is correct to say that scientifically it cannot be said that the explosive device was kept beneath the seat of the LML Freedom bike. It is correct to say that I had guessed that the explosive might have been kept beneath the seat of the bike. I did not find any proof that the explosive was kept beneath the seat of the bike.”
The witness claimed that during the spot examination, he could not find the centre point of the blast. The defence alleged that since the expert could not find any crater, detonator or wire it is possible that the articles could be planted at the place.
