Faizabad, Nov 27 (UNI) Owing to the token strike by advocates across Uttar Pradesh against the coordinated blasts in Faizabad, Lucknow and Varanasi courts, an application seeking Narco and polygraphy tests of Shashi murder accused Vijay Sen Yadav could not be heard.
Changing statements by main accused and former chauffeur of ex-Uttar Pradesh food processing minister Anand Sen Yadav, Vijay, had further puzzled the case.
Therefore, on instructions of higher officials, investigating officer Sharad Chandra Pandey had submitted an application before Chief Judicial Magistrate Shailesh Kumar Tiwari on November 22.
He had demanded Narco analysis and polygraphy tests of Vijay to solve the case.
The court fixed November 29 as next hearing of the case.
Vijay -- the main accused of abducting 'Shashi,' a III yr Law student of Saket Degree College, who went missing on October 22 from Faizabad -- is said to be a relative of the minister.
The changing statements by the accused has left the police baffled. At times, he said, Shashi committed suicide by jumping into the river Gomti in Sultanpur district and at times, he confessed, saying he pushed her into the river.
On October 31, Vijay had surrendered, following the charges against him.
State Minister Anand Sen Yadav had resigned from the Mayawati cabinet after the victim's father had made allegations upon him.
When the Mayawati cabinet had taken oath of office and secrecy in May 2007, Yadav could not be sworn in as a minister as he was behind bars in a murder case. He took oath at a later date.
His father Mitra Sen Yadav, an MP, was allegedly involved in a case of human trafficking.
