Ahmedabad: The nine Pakistani nationals who were arrested by the Border Security Force (BSF) early this week are likely to undergo lie detector (polygraph) and narco analysis test, police said on Friday.

"The interrogation of the nine men is on at the Joint Interrogation Centre (JIC) by various intelligence agencies. Since not much information is coming out, we would also go for lie detection and Narco test," Kutch Superintendent of Police Wabang Jamir told agency.

"The final decision for conducting the tests will be taken only after the interrogation is complete," he said.

Jamir said that they would go step by step and first conduct the lie detection test and if needed would go for the narco analysis test.

The nine persons belong to a place called Thatta in Sindh province of Pakistan. While six are from the same family, three others are also related to each other.

BSF officials had apprehended the nine men at the Creek area in the western part of Kutch and seized their boat on Monday foiling their bid to infiltrate into India.

The operation was carried out following intelligence report that some people from Pakistan were planning to intrude into the country.

Over 20 flights were delayed and ten diverted to nearby airports of Lucknow and Jaipur, as the airport area witnessed 31.8 mm of rains in just 30 minutes and a wind speed of 48 knots or about 100 kms an hour.

"The airport experienced unprecedented rains and winds due to which the visibility fell to below 100 metres, affecting the flight operations," Andrew Harrison, COO of Delhi International Airport Limited, told agency.

MeT Palam Office Director R K Jenamani said the rains were so heavy that 24 hours of average rainfall poured down in just half an hour.

Long queues of vehicles were seen on Chanakyapuri where a number of embassies including that of United States, Australia and China are located.

Traffic snarls were also reported from the busy ITO, Connaught Place, Shankar Road, Akbar Road, Bahadur Shah Marg, South Avenue and Vikas Marg among other areas.

"I got stranded at Parliament Street for more than an hour," Muthuvel, a senior manager at a private firm, said.

Services on the Delhi Metro were not affected due to the rains and it was running normally.

MCD received complaints of water logging from 12 areas like Minto Bridge, Lajpat Nagar, Moolchand flyover, Pusa Road, Najafgarh, Narela, Rohini and Shahdara till 1815 hours.

It also received complaints of fallen trees from 14 places including in Mathura Road, Lodhi Road, Shahidpur depot, Saket and some areas in west Delhi.
