CBI wants to conduct a lie detector test
Reports suggest that the CBI has been preparing to conduct a lie detector test of accused Anand Giri. The agency will soon take the required permission from the court so that the test can be done. For the last few days, CBI has been investigating the call details of Narendra Giri and Anand Giri. They are questioning sewadars of Baghmbri Math and the saints who were close to late Mahant Narendra Giri and collecting information about those who were regular visitors of the Math.
The agency is checking all the bank transactions as a part of the investigations. Reports suggest that the agency got the information that Mahant owed money to so many people, and that angle is also being investigated.
