New Delhi, Nov 24: Arms dealer Abhishek Verma, a witness in a 1984 riots case against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, said that the CBI told him on Friday that it has postponed his polygraph test as the lie detection machine has broken down.
“CBI Investigating Officer called me at 2.20 p.m. today (Friday), saying that (someone from) the FSL Rohini (Forensic Science Laboratory) conveyed to him that their polygraph machine is broken (or faulty) and that’s why they can’t conduct tests from November 27 to 30,” Verma told IANS.
Earlier, the Central Bureau of Investigation had set November 27 to 30 to conduct Verma’s polygraph test.
The CBI told Verma that new dates for conducting the test would be conveyed whenever the machine is repaired.
A court on November 1 had directed the CBI to conduct the lie detection test by the end of November. (IANS)
