Court to hear Ajmer blast accused`s narco petition on Tuesday
Ajmer: A local court on Monday decided to
hear tomorrow a revision petition of Devender Gupta, arrested
in connection with the 2007 Ajmer Dargah bomb blast, on
proposed narco test on him.
This was decided by District and Session Judge
Prashant Agarwal, according to Umardan Lakhawat, advocate of
Gupta, suspected to have links with a Hindu militant
outfit, filed the revision petition on May 6 against the
proposed narco and brain mapping tests on him by Rajasthan
Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).
The petition came in the wake of a Supreme Court
ruling terming as unconstitutional compulsory use of
narco-analysis, brain-mapping and polygraph tests as it
amounted unwarranted intrusion into personal liberty.
Gupta has claimed in his revision petition that ATS
has not taken his consent for conducting the tests.
Gupta, a resident of Bihari Ganj in Ajmer, was
arrested by the Rajasthan ATS on April 29 when he had gone to
meet his ailing mother, according to ATS officials. He was
later produced before an Ajmer court which remanded him in
police custody till May 12.
The court had granted permission to the ATS to carry
out the narco test after it had moved an application in this
regard on May 1.
