The Special Investigation Team () probing the murder of journalist Gauri Lankesh has secured permission from the court to make the accused KT Naveen Kumar undergo a narco analysis test.

The accused replied in the affirmative when asked by the judge of the 3rd ACMM court whether he is willing to undergo this test.

According to Nirmala Rani, Assistant Public Prosecutor, the test will be conducted in Gujarat. Rani told India Today that as per Supreme Court rules, consent of an individual is a must before they undergo narco test. In this case, the accused agreed when asked by the magistrate.

CBI wants Karti Chidambaram to undergo narco test, moves Delhi court

  CBI wants Karti Chidambaram to undergo narco test, moves Delhi court CBI wants Karti Chidambaram to undergo narco test, moves Delhi courtOn Tuesday, the CBI had moved three applications in the court, one of which had asked for a narco test on Karti, son of senior Congress leader P Chidambaram. The court will hear the matter on Friday.

K T Naveen Kumar, the man named an accused in journalist Gauri Lankesh murder case, will undergo Lie detection and Brain Fingerprinting tests as part of investigations.

Kumar will also undergo a narco - analysis test to understand the depth of his knowledge about the conspiracy to kill Gauri Lankesh and to corroborate statements given so far. He consented to undergo narco - analysis when produced before a magistrate’s court in Bengaluru Monday.

Since the only institution in India that conducts this test is located in Gujarat, the prosecution will now send a requisition to the Centre. Once the dates are confirmed, they will take permission from the court to proceed.

Rani argues that the intention of the investigation team is to know whether Naveen is hiding something, since in the conscious state of mind, he is not revealing much details. They want him to undergo this test to elicit the truth.

"The truth will obviously come out once the test is done," Nirmala Rani says confidently.

Naveen's counsel Vedamurthy is confident that his client will successfully undergo this test and the results will prove his innocence.

"I will be present when all this is done and my client is prepared," Vedamurthy tells India Today.
