LeT terrorist Naved to undergo lie detector test

New Delhi,August 17:The NIA today got permission from a Delhi court to conduct a lie detector test on LeT terrorist Mohammed Naved Yakub, who was captured by villagers after an attack on a BSF bus in Udhampur earlier this month, which had left two of its personnel dead.

The anti-terror agency also secured permission to collect his DNA and voice samples.

The lie detector test on Naved will be carried out at 11 am on Tuesday at the Central Forensic Science Laboratory in CGO complex.

District Judge Amar Nath granted NIA's prayer for the polygraphy test after Naved gave his consent for the test in writing in Urdu.

"Keeping in view the seriousness and gravity of the offence I am of the considered opinion that polygraph test of accused is required to be conducted in the facts and circumstances of the instant case as fully explained in the application."

"Accordingly, I allow the present application permitting the NIA to take the accused to Central Forensic Science Laboratory, CGO Complex, Lodhi Road, New Delhi on August 18 at 11 am for conducting polygraph test," the judge said.
