New Delhi, Nov 5: Delhi High Court has stayed the trial court order allowing narco-analysis of the Maoist leader, Kobad Ghandy and asked the Delhi Police to file a status report by Dec 14.

The high court on Thursday, Nov 5 passed the order restraining the police from conducting the narco test on Kobad Ghandy, in response to the appeal filed by Ghandy on Wednesday, Nov 4 challenging the trial court's order.

Ghandy's counsel Rebecca M John argued that until and unless Constitutional validity of narco test is decided by the Supreme Court, an accused cannot be forced to undergo such a test.

On Oct 31, the trial court allowed the Delhi police to conduct the test on the 63-year-old Maoist leader after the investigators contended that they were unable to extract any information from Ghandy despite using the all scientific methods.
