Rejecting the bail plea of Abhishek Kasliwal, son of Sriram Mills owner, in a rape case, a court on Friday allowed police to subject him to scientific tests.
The accused moved the Bombay High Court which upheld the lower court order.
Remanding Kasliwal to police custody till March 21, Magistrate SS Suroshe observed that there was sufficient material to show that the alleged offences were punishable with life imprisonment.
Kasliwal is accused of raping a 52-year-old woman on March 11 in his car at Sriram Mill compound.
After the magistrate allowed the police plea to conduct polygraph test and brain mapping test on the accused, Kasliwal's lawyer moved the Bombay High Court which observed that it would not come in the way of police who were investigating the case.
Kasliwal's lawyer Sirish Gupte submitted that police had already collected the clothes of the accused and other evidence and argued that scientific tests were not required in this case.
However, the High Court said it would not interfere with the magistrate's order at this stage.
