—A Delhi based Metropolitan Court of Magistrate Santosh Kumar on May 14  issued directions for conducting a lie detection test of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar on May 30 in connection with two cases pertaining to 1984 Sikh genocide. The move came after Sajjan Kumar agreed to undergo Polygraph test.

The Court has also directed the Director of Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), Lodhi Road, to conduct a polygraph test on Sajjan Kumar.

“The court has examined the accused regarding voluntariness only with respect of giving consent for conducting lie detector test (Polygraph Test).
