New Delhi, December 1
Shraddha Walkar murder accused Aaftab Poonawala underwent a narco analysis test for almost two hours at a Rohini hospital here on Thursday as part of the ongoing investigation in the case, officials said.
Officials said Poonawala’s narco test was completely successful and his health condition is absolutely fine.
They said Poonawala reached Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital in Rohini at 8.40am and the narco test started at around 10am. After the test, he was kept under observation.
Before undergoing the test, a general check-up was done to check his blood pressure, pulse rate, body temperature and heartbeat, a senior official said.
A consent form with complete details of Poonawala and the team conducting his narco test was read out to him as part of the procedure. After he signed the form, the narco analysis procedure was started, the official said.
Narco analysis involves intravenous administration of a drug that causes the person undergoing it to enter into various stages of anaesthesia.
In the hypnotic stage, the person becomes less inhibited and is more likely to divulge information, which would usually not be revealed in the conscious state.
Investigating agencies use this test after other pieces of evidence do not provide a clear picture of a case.
Delhi Police earlier said it sought Poonawalla's narco analysis test as his responses during interrogation were "deceptive" in nature.
