Court to hear polygraph bail plea on May 20: Sunanda murder case


New Delhi: Delhi Police’s plea to conduct polygraph test on three “suspects” in Sunanda Pushkar murder case on grounds that they were hiding some material facts, would come up for consideration before a city court next Wednesday. The police filed its application before Metropolitan Magistrate Sunil Kumar Sharma who fixed it for consideration on May 20.

In the plea, police has urged the court to initiate proceedings of polygraph test on Shashi Tharoor’s domestic help Narain Singh, driver Bajrangi and friend Sanjay Dewan, saying they were hiding material facts relating to the case. During investigations, several persons including Narain, Bajrangi and Dewan were examined as they were closely associated with Tharoor and Pushkar, and were also present at Hotel Leela Palace here just before her death.

“During investigation, it has been found that the three persons are concealing material facts and did not disclose several issues related to the death of Sunanda Pushkar,” the plea filed by SHO of Sarojini Nagar Police Station said.
