NEW DELHI: Delhi Police probing into Sunanda Pushkar case has, so far, conducted polygraph tests on six persons including Narain Singh, the domestic help of Sunanda’s husband and former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor. Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi on Monday said that if required, the investigators may conduct further such tests.

“So far we have carried out polygraph tests on six persons. If there is any requirement we will conduct further tests,” Bassi said.

In May, a Delhi court allowed the Police to conduct lie detector test on the three persons -- Narain Singh, Tharoor’s driver Bajrangi and Sanjay Dewan -- after taking their due consent. Three others -- S K Sharma, Vikas Ahlawat and Sunil Takru -- had also undergone the polygraph test.

The court had also put a condition that the guidelines laid down by the NHRC and the SC be followed in conducting the procedure.
