The Delhi Police is planning to move court to obtain permission for conducting a lie detector test on Tharoor. Officials are convening meetings to discuss when the decision could be taken to approach the court, sources told NDTV.
The police needs permission of the court to make Tharoor undergo a polygraph. Also, Tharoor too has to agree to the lie detector test.
Meanwhile, office of the MP from Thiruvananthapuram has informed that he would cooperate with the Delhi Police in connection with Sunanda Pushkar’s murder case.
Tharoor’s office has, however, confirmed that there has been no request from the police, for him to undergo a lie detector test.
Special Investigation Team (SIT) may move an application in the Patiala House court to conduct a polygraph test on Tharoor.
It may be noted that, six persons—Tharoor’s domestic help Narayan Singh, driver Bajrangi and his friend Sanjay Dewan, SK Sharma, Vikas Ahlawat and Sunil Takruñ – have undergone lie-detector tests.
The police interrogated 6 persons and sent 20 mobile phones for forensic examination.
During the polygraph test, more than 100 questions related to crucial facts, including injuries on Pushkar’s body, were asked. All the suspects were also asked about Tharoor’s relationship with Pushkar and Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar.
Officials privy to the probe said, the suspects were also questioned about the couple’s fight a day before Sunanda’s death. The messages recovered from her mobile phone were also part of the questions.
Pushkar married Tharoor in 2010 and was found dead in a room at the Leela Palace Hotel in Delhi, on January 17, 2014.
