The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) of India has filed a plea in a Delhi court seeking a lie detector test on Congress leader Jagdish Tytler in relation to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case.
The CBI is also seeking lie detector test on the tainted arms dealer Abhishek Verma.
Jagdish Tytler and Abhishek Verma, both are asked to appear before the Delhi Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate today at 4 p.m. where the court will try to ascertain their stand on the plea.
1984 anti-Sikh riots saw thousands of Sikhs massacred on Delhi streets after the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
The CBI has given clean chit to Jagdish Tytler several times, however the court has directed the agency to further investigate the matter.
Abhisehk Verma revealed several times to CBI that he was under pressure from Jagdish Tytler related to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, which has triggered the speculations.
