He called the Local Police but during the process of investigation by police, no specific accused was traced out to be linked to murder. Three days later the police arrested two persons on suspect but failed to reach at a conclusion and the circumstances did not relate to the case. On reasonable doubt the police thereafter took them to Forensic Lab of Ahmedabad and Bangalore in two occasions where no satisfactory technical evidence was found out. Then the police authorities asked the alleged accused persons for further test at Hyderabad and the accused persons went to Hyderabad voluntarily and after the tests were conducted by the doctors it was found that the alleged accused persons were linked to the murder. The police brought them to Delhi and registered murder case against them and framed charges and produced
them in the court of local jurisdiction. They were sent to judicial custody for fifteen days. After a week the accused persons filed a writ petition in Delhi High Court under Article 226 of the Constitution praying that their narco tests violates their personal liberty enshrined in the Constitution and their arrest and remand should be ceased at the leave of the Court and they should be acquitted and should be compensated on the ground of defamation.
