Court turns down plea to conduct Narco test on Nazir
Kochi: A court in Kerala has rejected a plea by the Crime Branch police for conducting narco analysis test on suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba operative T Nazir in connection with the burglary of 2.5 kg of gold ornaments from a jewellery near here in June 2002.
Kolenchery Judicial Magistrate R Jayakrishnan yesterday turned down the application filed by the crime branch after Nazir had earlier refused to submit himself to the test.
The Magistrate said the Crime branch should not have filed such an application as the Supreme Court had clearly stated that narco, polygraph and brain mapping tests cannot be conducted without the consent of the accused.
Earlier, Nazir, the main accused in the 2008 Bangalore serial blasts, has also been listed as an accused in the robbery case after the NIA court, hearing various terror related cases in Kerala, gave its nod.
Police had sought permission to subject Nazir to the test to find out to whom the gold jewels were sold. The jewellery was targeted to raise funds for terror activities.
