The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is investigating the murder of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar, has sought permission to conduct polygraph tests on two suspects belonging to the rightwing outfit >Sanatan Sanstha .

The CBI, on Friday, submitted a petition at a local court in Pune to administer the tests on Hemant Shinde and Nilesh Shinde in connection with the murder.

In December 2016, the CBI had identified the duo as prime suspects in the murder and submitted the same before the Bombay High Court.

In May 2016, the CBI had published fresh sketches of the suspected assailants almost 21 months after Dabholkar was gunned down in Pune.
