Bangalore, Jun 12 (UNI) The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), handling the sensational Aarushi murder case, today began a narco-analysis test on Krishna, an accused in the case, in a city hospital.
Krishna, a compounder in the dental clinic of Dr Rajesh Talwar, the father of the slain teenager and main accused in the case, was brought to the Government Bowring Hospital amidst tight security by CBI officials and taken straight to the operation theatre, where he is undergoing the four-hour test.
Scientists from the city-based Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) were conducting the test in the presence of CBI sleuths which was likely to continue till late in the afternoon, hospital sources said.
The CBI hoped that the narco tests would provide vital clues to the murder of the 14-year-old girl, who was found dead along with her attendant Hemraj in her Noida home on May 15.
Krishna is said to possess valuable information on the alleged illicit affair Dr Talwar had with a woman doctor, who was also a partner in the clinic.
Yesterday, the officials subjected the accused to brain-mapping tests at the FSL premises in Madiwala in the city.
Under fire for illegally detaining Krishna for over ten days, the CBI yesterday broke its silence over the continuing interrogation of suspects in the case and said the compounder had been subjected to 'various tests' to verify the contradictions in his earlier statements given to the Noida police.
