Meanwhile. prosecution witness and arms dealer Abhishek Verma’s counsel sought more time saying that his client was unwell.

The court allowed Verma’s plea and listed the matter for June 2 for further proceedings. On May 9, the court asked Tytler and Verma to make their stands clear — by persol appearance or an affidavit on May 22 — whether they will undergo lie-detector test in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
