THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Thiruvananthapuram POCSO Court on Tuesday denied bail to Gangeshananda Theerthapada alias Hari Swami in connection with the incident of chopping of his genitals by a woman during an alleged rape bid.
While dismissing his bail plea, the court also said the woman could be subject to lie detection and brain mapping test. The police had earlier sought these tests as well as a detailed medical check-up of the 23-year-old woman who had last month told the police she had bobbitised Gangeshananda Theerthapada.
The court also directed the woman to appear before it on June 26 to explain her view regarding the lie detection and brain mapping tests. The police had sought the test after the woman said the police were fabricating stories about the case.
