Badaun rape: Victims' kin undergo polygraph test
The CBI on Monday carried out lie-detector test on the fathers of the two cousin sisters from Badaun in Uttar Pradesh who were allegedly raped, killed and their bodies found hanging from a tree even as the victims' family objected to the move of the agency.

The CBI on Monday carried out lie-detector test on the fathers of the two cousin sisters from Badaun in Uttar Pradesh who were allegedly raped, killed and their bodies found hanging from a tree even as the victims' family objected to the move of the agency.

CBI sources said the fathers of the rape victims, a family member and a witness have been brought to undergo polygraph test at Central Forensic Science Laboratory in CGO complex in New Delhi.

Protesting the move, the victims' brother Virendra along with the members of Naya Daur Party sat on fast unto death in New Delhi at Jantar Mantar alleging that CBI is harassing his family by subjecting his father to lie-detector test. Speaking to PTI, he said CBI is focusing on the victims rather than the accused.

The sources said they have taken three-days time from the court in Badaun to subject these four persons to polygraph or lie-detector test but if the procedure is completed earlier they may be allowed to go.

They said during the test which started on Monday, the family members of the victims were repeatedly asked about the mobile phone of the girls and why it was broken.

The CBI sources said they are not doubting the claims made by the families of the victims, but in order to develop a flawless case the agency needs to test the veracity of their statements.

The sources said the statements given by the family members have some inconsistencies which need to be clarified before proceeding in the case.
