Sikh Genocide 1984: Delhi Court’s Verdict on Jagdish Tytler’s Lie Detector Test Expected Today

May 22, 2017 | By

New Delhi: After the Delhi High Court here last month (9th May) asked the convict in 1984 Sikh Genocide cases Jagdish Tytler  about his wish whether to undergo a lie detector test or not, the Karkardooma court will here on Monday pronounce its order on the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) plea, seeking permission to conduct a lie-detector test on Congress leader Jagdish Tytler.

It was earlier this month (9th May)  the court gave two weeks to Jagdish Tytler and arms dealer Abhishek Verma to file their contentions and appear before the court about their consent on conduction of lie-detector test and provision of security, notes The Tribune (TT)

The Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Shivali Sharma at that time stated that she was in no mood to entertain a conditional consent, reads the media report.

Moreover, the court at that time further issued similar direction to businessman Abhishek Verma and said the probe agency’s plea seeking permission for lie-detector test on Jagdish Tytler and Abhishek Verma was maintainable.

The court had held the CBI’s application maintainable, while rejecting objections about maintainability.

Earlier in April, Tytler refused to undergo a lie-detector test in connection with the case.

It was back in February this year the CBI had sought the court’s permission for lie-detector tests on Jagdish Tytler and Abhishek Verma.

Earlier, the investigating agency had in its plea requested the court to direct the duo to appear before it and accord their consent for conducting polygraph test so that further investigation could be conducted, reads a quote from report published in an English vernacular.

Jagdish Tytler is said to be leading a mob in the 1984 Pul Bangash case in which three Sikhs were killed.

The investigative agency had earlier given a clean chit to Jagdish Tytler in the above said case but  re-opened the investigation following the December 4, 2015, order in the wake of Abhishek Verma’s accusation.

The investigative agency moved a written application in the Karkardooma court on the issue, after the arms dealer’s statement against the Congress politician of influencing a witness, Surender Singh, by giving him money and promising to send his son Narender Singh to Canada, media sources said.
