NEW DELHI, Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- The Singapore doctor who carried out the postmortem of the 23-year-old gang-rape victim will be included as a witness in the 50-page charge sheet to be filed against the six thugs who committed the crime at a fast-track court in the Indian capital Thursday, the Press Trust of India reported on Tuesday.

The boyfriend of the victim will be the main witness in the case while the Singapore doctor, and the Indian embassy official in Singapore who received her death certificate would be asked to testify, the report quoted Delhi Police sources as saying.

The sources said under the Indian law, it was mandatory for a doctor carrying out a postmortem in a medico-legal case to be made a witness.

The rape victim died last Saturday at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.
