    The decision to seek a narco analysis test was taken after Karti was extremely evasive during questioning. The CBI has told the court on two occasions in the past that he is being evasive and does not cooperate. Hence a narco analysis test would need to be conducted, the CBI felt.

    As per the procedure, an investigating agency can seek a narco analysis test only with the permission of the court. The accused person too would need to give his consent for the test, the rules also state.
