Sadhvi Pragya Thakur to undergo narco test

October 27, 2008 17:05 IST

Pragya Singh Thakur, the sadhvi arrested in connection with Malegaon bomb blasts, will undergo polygraph, brain mapping and narco tests, a government lawyer said on Monday.

A local court gave the Anti-Terrorist Squad permission for the tests while remanding her and two others to police custody till November 3, public prosecutor Ajay Misar told media-persons in Nashik.

An application was moved by the ATS before joint civil judge, senior division A N Khadse, to grant permission for the polygraphy, brain mapping and narco tests on 38-year-old Pragya, he said, adding that the tests were part of the investigation.

Misar said that he had no idea about possibility of the two retired army officers, questioned for their role in the blasts, being produced before the Nashik court.

"I have not received any intimation from the authorities concerned," Misar said. He did not reveal when Pragya will undergo polygraph, brain mapping and narco tests.
