Still waiting for narco of asaram sadhak – Verdict in Asaram narco test adjourned till October 4

Ahmedabad, September 20 Chief Metropolitan Magistrate D M Patel on Saturday adjourned the verdict in the narco-analysis test case of two ‘sadhaks’ (disciples) of the Asaram Bapu Ashram till October 4.
Though no criminal case was registered against Pankaj Saxena and Yogesh Bhati, the two sadhaks, the CID (Crime) had sought permission to conduct narco-analysis tests in a bid to dig out the truth following the mysterious deaths of two minor boys at the Ashram gurukul.

The prosecution counsel contended that it was necessary to conduct the narco-analysis test on the two disciples to unravel the mystery surrounding the deaths of the two children.

The prosecution also contended that there was no need to obtain consent of the suspects. He said the Gujarat High Court, in a recent order in the case of Santokhben Jadeja vs State of Gujarat had held that there was no need to seek consent of the accused to conduct scientific test or narco-analysis.

He was, however, strongly opposed by defence counsels Rohit Verma and Bharat Joshi. They argued that the present case could not be compared to the Santokhben case as the latter was an accused while the two disciples are not. The two disciples had earlier refused to undergo the test.
