CBI seeks permission to conduct polygraph test on Raja Bhaiyya

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday moved a petition in a special court requesting for a polygraph test of former Uttar Pradesh minister Raghuraj Pratap Singh, alias Raja Bhiayya, to probe his involvement in the murder of the deputy superintendent of police (DySP) Zia-ul-Haq.

The petition was moved here in the special CBI court of Zeenat Mirza seeking a permission to go for a lie detector test of the legislator. The court is expected to hear the application on 11 June.
The demand of the CBI came after a marathon interrogation of Raja Bhaiyya for around 19 hours on 15 and 16 May.

In the application moved in the court, the CBI has also asked Raja to appear on June 11 in the court and give his version whether he is ready for the polygraph test or not. Sources said during the interrogation there were  some conflicting statement by the leader and to cross-examine those links, polygraph test is necessary.

The former UP minister is an accused in conspiracy  of the murder of DySP on 2 March at Walipur village of Kunda tehsil in Pratapgarh district after the murder of Pradhan Nanhe Yadav and his brother Suresh. CBI had already filed an initial chargesheet against five people in the murder of the pradhan in which the name of the former Minister was not included.
