Delhi High Court Says It Didn’t Order Lie-Detector Test On Suspected Students In Najeeb’s Case
New Delhi: In a new development in the case of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad, Delhi High Court on Monday clarified that it didn’t instruct Delhi police to conduct lie-detector tests on any of the nine suspected students in the case.
The court also said it was not monitoring the probe in the disappearance of Ahmad stating it was the domain of the police to decide the manner in which investigation has to be carried out.
The Monday’s observation is in contradiction with the Court’s order last week in which a bench of bench of justices G S Sistani and Vinod Goel had said: “The student had gone missing in October (2016), it is February now. Nearly four months have gone by and none of the leads are going anywhere. We asked for polygraph test as the other leads have not yielded any results.”
The court’s observation on Monday came during the hearing of an application by one of the nine students, who are suspects in the case, seeking recall of the high court’s December 14 and December 22, 2016 orders.
