B S Bassi

New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi on Wednesday said a polygraph test would be conducted on the three witnesses – Sanjay Dewan, Narain Singh and Bajrangi linked to the Sunanda Pushkar murder case.

“We will be conducting a polygraph test as per the guidelines of court. As soon as we get the dates from expert, they will be called for polygraph test,” Bassi told ANI.

Earlier in the day, the trio agreed to undergo the lie-detector tests.

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) of the Delhi Police had earlier said that Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s domestic help Narain Singh, driver Bajrangi and family friend Sanjay Dewan might be “hiding something” including “material facts” and asked a Delhi court for permission to subject them to a polygraph test.

Tharoor has been questioned thrice over the alleged murder of his wife, who was found dead in their hotel suite on January 17 last year, days after she publicly accused her husband of having an affair with Pakistani journalist, Mehr Tarar.
