New Delhi, December 25:

A fresh testimony of the Delhi gang rape victim was recorded on Tuesday by the metropolitan magistrate after controversy erupted over recording of her earlier statement.

Controversy erupted over the recording of the 23-year-old victim''s statement after Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit complained to Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde that senior police officials interfered in the process and sought an enquiry.

"A fresh statement of the girl has been recorded by the metropolitan magistrate," said a senior police official.

In a letter to Shinde, Dikshit cited a communication to her by Deputy Commissioner (East) B M Mishra that Sub Divisional Magistrate Usha Chaturvedi claimed that three senior police officers had prevented the video recording of the victim''s statement.

It was also alleged that the police officers wanted the SDM to use a questionnaire they prepared.

Delhi Police came out with a strong denial and also demanded a high-level probe into the leakage of Dikshit''s letter to Shinde.

Meanwhile,the health condition of the victim is stable but still critical. She is conscious, alert and communicating. (ANI)
