Vijayawada, Mar 15 (UNI) A petition filed by the Vijayawada Police seeking permission to conduct narco-analysis test on seven persons in connection with the sensational Ayesha Meera Murder Case was rejected by the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court here today.
Ayesha Meera, a first-year B Pharm student, was allegedly raped and murdered at a private hostel in Ibrahimpatnam on December 27 last.
Magistrate N Raja Prasad Baba said, ''in my considerable view, this court has absolutely no jurisdiction to entertain this requisition or allow the persons to be sent for the narco-test.
There are no bonafide grounds and accordingly the requisition is being rejected.'' In the petition, the police sought permission from the court to conduct narco-test on hostel warden padma, her husband I Krishna, hostel cook Siva Anjaneyulu, students Sowmya, Preethi and Kavitha and a known criminal Gurvinder Singh alias 'Laddoo.' The students told the court yesterday they would have no objection for the test only if there was a guarantee that the tests conducted on them would have no bearing on their health.
The lawyer representing the hostel cook told the court that his client was against the test due to health reasons, while Padma and Krishna did not appear before the court.
