Abhishek Kasliwal, who has been arrested on a rape charge, will undergo brain mapping and polygraph tests at the Regional Forensic Science Laboratory in Bangalore, police said.
The Worli police have decided to make Abhishek, scion of Shree Ram mills, undergo the tests to ascertain the truth in the alleged rape incident, since there were a lot of discrepancies between the information provided by him and the complainant.
Abhishek will undergo a polygraph test first, followed by brain-mapping test at the Bangalore lab, all of which is expected to last for approximately three hours, they said.
The report of the brain-mapping test is admissible evidence in the court of law, while a polygraph test report provides in-depth information about the level of conceit by the person in the case, they said.
A local court on Friday had allowed Mumbai police to subject Abhishek to scientific tests.
Abhishek was arrested by Worli police last week on the complaint of a 52-year-old Anglo-Indian woman who has charged him of rape and assault.
