Hearing the plea of public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam on Friday, judge P V Bavkar allowed the ATS to perform brain mapping, polygraph test and narco-analysis test on Salem.

The prosecutor placed on record Salem's consent to undergo the tests.

"ATS intends to make Salem undergo the lie detection (polygraph), brain mapping tests and narco-analysis tests to get more clues out of him about the involvement of other accused in the Jain murder case," the court was told.

The prosecutor told the court that Salem had disclosed names of certain individuals who were part of his financial chain of collection and distribution of extortion money.
