The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Wednesday adjourned the hearing till August 24 on the petitions challenging the proposed lie detector and brain mapping test on Satyam Computer founder B Ramalinga Raju and two other accused in the multi-crore fraud in the IT company.

Justice G Bhavani Prasad on Wednesday adjourned further hearing on the petitions challenging the proposed lie detector and brain mapping test on the accused till August 24.

The petitioners contended that everything that they could reveal has already come out in the CB-CID enquiry and there is no need to subject them to the lie-detector test and that it is in violation of their fundamental rights.

On July 9, the XIV Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, the designated CBI court, granted permission to the CBI to conduct forensic tests on Ramalinga Raju, his brother and former Satyam MD Rama Raju and ex-CFO V Srinivas in the case.

The court asked the investigating agency to conduct the tests within eight weeks. The trio, however, challenged this order in the High Court.
