Psychological tests on Sadhvi in Mumbai

india Updated: Oct 31, 2008 12:50 IST

The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Friday took Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, an accused in the Malegaon blast case, to the forensic science laboratory in Mumbai where she will undergo brain-mapping and polygraph tests.

Pragya will undergo brain-mapping, polygraph and lie detector tests at Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) in suburban Santa Cruz, ATS Director Rukmani Krishnamurthy said.

The Nashik Court had permitted the ATS to conduct these psychological tests on Sadhvi.

Meanwhile, Pragya's brother-in-law Bhagwan Jha has alleged that ATS officials physically tortured her and is planning to approach the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) in this regard.

"We will first move the Human Rights Commission and then the Bombay High Court demanding an inquiry to be set-up in this matter as Pragya is being falsely implicated in this case," Jha said.

Thakur, a former ABVP office bearer, was picked up by the ATS from Surat in connection with the Malegaon blast on September 29.
