The prosecution told the court that the investigation revealed that the victim was kidnapped and later gang-raped in a vehicle. Also, when the trial was underway, main accused Raut escaped from the Sassoon Hospital in Pune on September 17, 2011, while being escorted to the hospital for medical treatment.

The prosecution and the defence examined 37 and 13 witnesses, respectively, in support of their case. The maximum sentence the three convicts can attract on these counts is a death penalty or life in prison. The case has been heard by four judges in last six years.
