The investigating officials probing the mysterious death of Sunanda Pushkar may move a local court seeking lie detector test on her husband and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor.
Six persons including three “prime witnesses” in the case were already put through lie detector (polygraph) test and sources indicated that the police may go for carrying out the test on Tharoor.
On the other hand, Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi said, he was not aware of any such move, but said it was upto the investigating officer to do what he deemed fit.
As per the procedure, the prosecution will have to move a plea before the court seeking permission to carry out the test and it will depend on whether Tharoor gives his consent for it or not.
Last month, Delhi Police had approached a city court for permission to carry out lie detector test on Narain Singh, who is domestic help of Sunanda’s husband and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, driver Bajrangi and family friend Sanjay Dewan.
The court had later allowed the investigators to conduct the polygraph test on the three suspects with their consent.
Three others — S K Sharma, Vikas Ahlawat and Sunil Takru, had also undergone the polygraph test.
