New Delhi: Dhruv Narayan Singh, a BJP MLA from Madhya Pradesh, was Wednesday subjected by CBI to a lie-detection test here in connection with the murder of RTI activist Shehla Masood, as he professed innocence.

Singh, MLA from Bhopal, arrived at the Central Forensic Science Laboratory with the CBI for his polygraph test at around 11 AM and remained there for nearly three hours.

Emerging out of the laboratory, Singh told reporters that allegations levelled against him by architect Zahida Parvez, an accused in the case, are baseless and that he is completly innocent.

CBI sources meanwhile said Singh was asked several questions related to his purported relationship with victim Shehla Masood and Parvez, besides whether he knew about the murder plan allegedly hatched by the architect.

They said a detailed questionnaire covering these broad topics was prepared by the experts which was put before him.

During the probe, CBI has found that Parvez had allegedly "very close relations" with the MLA, to the extent of obsession, and resented his closeness with Masood, they said.

From her diary, the sleuths had come to know of several instances where Parvez had noted down her feelings for Singh and growing resentment for Masood, the sources said.

While analysing call details of Masood and her friend Farooqui, sleuths came across some calls made purportedly to a close aide of Singh soon after Masood was murdered on August 16 outside her house in Koh-e-Fiza locality in Bhopal.

Singh had given his consent to undergo polygraph test last week before a special CBI court in Indore which had then given the agency a go ahead.

Meanwhile, Farooqui and Parvez even after giving consent before the court had backtracked and refused to undergo polygraph test yesterday also.
