Six CPM workers, arrested for killing a BJP activist, have approached the trial court pleading for scientific lie detection tests, including narco analysis. Amidst allegation that parties used to fix proxy men as accused in political murders, the six accused have told the court that they "want to reveal the truth about the murder".
BJP activist C T Manoj, a native of Kozhikode, was hacked to death last February. The police had arrested 14 persons belonging to the CPM. Six of them, who reportedly have strained relations with the party, have approached the additional session's court in Kozhikode to subject them to lie detection tests. Five moved the court earlier this month and another on Thursday.
The court will hear the petitions on Monday.
After five of the accused moved the court for lie detection test, the CPM wanted them to withdraw the petition. The five assigned their own counsel, while another directly approached the court.
CPM Kozhikode district secretary T P Ramakrishnan refused to comment on the development.
