— Consider reading the article Congress supporter Saket Gokhale goes to court to stop Narco test orders given by Yogi government in Hathras case on OpIndia website —
A day after UP CM Yogi Adityanath ordered that Narco Polygraph tests of the complainant, accused and the cops involved with the Hathras case to be conducted, Congress supporter Saket Gokhale has moved the Allahabad High Court against the decision.
In the letter petition, Gokhale has urged the court to put an immediate stay on the narco analysis test to be conducted on the family of the victim of the Hathras case.
Calling the narco analysis test a means to coerce the family and intimidate them against deposing before the Court, Gokhale contended that this “coercion” is a violation of the orders of the Court.
“Subjecting the family of the victim to a narco-analysis test goes against all principles of natural justice as they’re neither accused in the case nor have been charged with any offence. Using an interrogation technique on the victim’s family is a blatant form of coercion” – the letter petition says.
The Allahabad court has fixed the date of hearing in the case for October 12 when the victim’s family is expected to be present before the Court to depose.
Polygraph test ordered for all complainant, accused and cops involved in the Hathras case
The Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, to ensure a fair and thorough probe in the Hathras case has decided upon carrying out narco-analysis polygraph tests on everyone involved in the case.
CM Yogi had tweeted earlier yesterday that those even think of harming women in Uttar Pradesh will be completely finished. Dissatisfied with the handling of the Hathras case by the administration, Yogi had also directed suspension of the Hathras SP, the DSP, the Inspector and some other officials, based on the preliminary investigation report.
Saket Gokhale and his fascination of filing petitions in matters which may not necessarily concern him
It is pertinent to note here, that Saket Gokhale, a less-known individual who fancies himself as an activist and threatens people at random with no concrete result, has this fixation to present such superfluous demands, which may not necessarily concern him, in front of the honourable court. He had earlier filed a petition in the Allahabad court demanding the court to stay the Bhumi Pujan in Ayodhya which he had said was in the interest of public health during a pandemic. The Allahabad High Court had, however, quashed the plea filed by Congress supporter Saket Gokhale observing that the entire petition was filed on the basis of assumptions.
Prior to this, the Congress troll was schooled by the Delhi police for peddling a lie about being granted permission to hold the rally.
