The former Haryana Director-General of Police, S.P.S. Rathore, convicted in a molestation case, has said that he is ready to undergo a narco analysis test if the family of the victim and the sole witness also took it.

The 67-year-old made the conditional offer to clear what he claimed were “lies” being spread against him by the family of the 14-year-old victim and her friend, the witness.

The teenager committed suicide in 1993, three years after being molested by the IPS officer.

“It's my moral duty to offer myself to the narco test, provided the victim's father and brother, their family friend, his wife and their daughter [the sole witness] also undergo the test,” he said in a recent communication to the State government.

A family friend dismissed Rathore's offer as a dilatory tactic, but said her family was ready to take the test.

Rathore said, “The victim and her family's friend have been spreading lies through the media … and have succeeded in getting three new false FIRs registered against me.”
