Faizabad, Dec 30 (UNI) The narco and polygraphy test of Shashi murder case prime accused Vijay Sen Yadav would be conducted between January 17 and 19 in Bangaluru.
Inspector General of Police (Lucknow zone) A K Jain informed this today saying, Vijay had changed statements during interrogation, following which the decision to conduct narco and polygraphy tests on him was taken.
On December 17, Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Shailesh Kumar Tiwari had granted permission for the tests on Vijay.
Besides, the CJM had ordered the investigating officer to submit the travel and test schedule of Vijay within 15 days.
The IG further informed that ''another accused in the case -- Seema Azad -- was yet to be nabbed. The property of her house would be attached soon.'' Shashi, a third year law student at Saket Degree College, went missing on October 22 from Faizabad.
Changing statements by Vijay, the former chauffeur of ex-Uttar Pradesh food processing minister Anand Sen Yadav, had further puzzled the case.
On the instruction of higher officials, investigating officer Sharad Chandra Pandey had submitted an application before the CJM on November 22, demanding narco analysis and polygraphy tests on Vijay, who is also said to be the relative of the ex-minister.
During interrogation, Vijay sometimes claimed that Shashi committed suicide by jumping into Gomti river in Sultanpur district.
At other times, he confessed that he himself pushed her into the river.
On October 31, Vijay had surrendered following charges against him.
State minister Anand Sen Yadav had to resign from the Mayawati cabinet, after the victim's father alleged his role in the case.
Interestingly, when the Mayawati cabinet took oath of office in May 2007, Anand 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.
