The Central Bureau of Investigation has moved the Ghaziabad Special Court seeking permission for subjecting the parents of the teenaged girl who was found murdered along with a domestic help under mysterious circumstances at her Noida residence in May 2008, to narco-analysis tests.
While the CBI remained tight-lipped on the development, it was learnt on Monday that the agency moved an application in the court a week ago. The agency submitted that the victim’s (teenaged girl’s) parents had given their consent for the tests. After hearing the arguments of both sides on Monday, the court reserved its order for Tuesday. Speaking to media on Monday, the father said the CBI sought the couple’s consent for the tests about a week ago and they gave their written approval.
“Our final objective is to get the killers,” he said.
However, the parents were surprised by the CBI’s request for the tests. The couple had earlier undergone brain mapping and lie-detector tests.
The couple’s daughter and their domestic help Hemraj were found murdered in their Noida house. Since then the case has gone through several twists and turns.
While the Uttar Pradesh police arrested the father on charges of murder, he was later virtually given a clean chit by the CBI.
The agency arrested his assistant Krishna and domestic helps, Rajkumar and Vijay Mandal. But no concrete evidence was found against them.
The CBI then re-constituted a team recently to investigate the case afresh. Meanwhile, the Crime Branch of the Delhi police reportedly recovered the victim’s Nokia N-72 mobile phone from Bulandshahr and handed it over to the agency last September.
