New Delhi, Oct 31 (ANI): The Patiala House court on Saturday allowed the Special Cell of Delhi Police to conduct a narco analysis test on Kobad Ghandy, a Polit Bureau Member of the banned CPI (Maoist).
The court's decision comes after a medical board of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) submitted its report and gave the go-ahead for narco analysis test on Ghandy, saying that he can withstand the test.
The medical board has also said that the test should be conducted under strict medical supervision as Ghandy is suffering from hypertension and other ailments.
Earlier on October 20, the Special Cell had filed an application before Chief Judicial Magistrate Kaveri Baweja seeking the narco analysis test on Ghandy, arguing that he was not cooperating with the police due to which it was getting difficult for them to carry out their investigation.
Taking action on the application, the court had directed AIIMS to constitute a medical board to examine Ghandy's fitness aspect.
Ghandy, who heads the CPI (Maoist) publication wing, was nabbed from South Delhi last month following inputs from intelligence agencies. He would be in judicial custody till November 13.
He has been a part of the People's War Group (PWG) since its initial stages. (ANI)
