Abhishek Verma alleges forensic lab 'bias'

New Delhi, Oct 27 (IANS) Businessman Abhishek Verma, a witness in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case against Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, on Friday moved an application in a local court alleging a forensic lab was “unfair and biased” while conducting his lie detector test.

“Senior Scientific Officer…was acting in a very biased manner and trying to defend the accused person of the present case, which is a matter of concern,” Verma, who is also an arms dealer, said in his application moved before the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate.

“The FSL, Rohini is not conducting the procedure for the lie detection test in a fair and impartial manner, rather the conduct and actions of FSL Rohini are extremely questionable.”

Verma also said in his plea that FSL (Forensic Science Laboratory) officers were asking questions about the cause of two marriage and why he is after Tytler.

Verma’s polygraph test was conducted in the FSL in Rohini here on October 24.

Verma has sought that a detailed standard operating procedure for conducting polygraph test be filed by the FSL, Rohini in the court to bring on record complete transparency.

The court in the last hearing asked the central agency to submit a test report on October 30.

It will also hear Verma’s plea then.

On the court’s direction, Verma had been provided round-the-clock security till his polygraphy is conducted after he had told the court that he apprehended serious threat to his life as well as that of his wife and mother.

The court was hearing a CBI plea for permission to conduct the lie-detector tests on Verma as well as Tytler, who is accused of leading a mob in Pul Bangash area in 1984 that led to the killing of three Sikhs. The Congress leader has refused to undergo the lie-detector test.

The agency’s move came after Verma’s accusation that Tytler influenced witness Surender Singh through money and a promise to send his son Narender Singh to Canada.

The CBI had earlier given a clean chit to Tytler in the case but reopened investigation following a December 4, 2015 court order in the wake of Verma’s allegation.
