New Delhi, May 20: The three witnesses in Sunanda Pushkar case will tell the court that they are ready to take the lie detector test. According to the law, when an investigating agency seeks permission from the court to conduct a lie detector test, it is necessary that the approval of the persons concerned is taken.
