New Delhi: Narco analysis on Aaftab Amin Poonawala, who is accused of killing his live-in partner Shraddha Walker, will be conducted at Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital here in Rohini here, most likely on Monday: As Poonawala’s five – day police custody ends on Tuesday, the Delhi Police is running against time to get the test conducted. However, Poonawala can be subjected to narco analysis only after he is deemed fit for it in the pre-narco tests which will be conducted to ascertain his mental well-being.

” We have not received any formal request from the police to conduct the test yet. But if the custody remand ends on Tuesday, we will comply with the court’s order and take up the matter. However, no date has been fixed yet, ” a source in the hospital said.

” The FSL team will also be involved in the narco test. However, this will be done only after a medical officer gives his nod that the person is physically, mentally, emotionally, and psychologically fit. Moreover, these tests take time.

” In this case, we are not aware if the accused has any medical condition or any psychological disorder. All these factors will have to be kept in mind before subjecting him to the tests. Only then can we move ahead with narco analysis, ” another source said . In case Poonawala comes across as a ” disturbed ” person during these initial tests, the narco analysis cannot be carried out, the source added.

Poonawala allegedly strangled Walker, 27, on May 18 and sawed her body into 35 pieces which he kept in a 300 – liter fridge for almost three weeks at his residence in South Delhi’s Mehrauli before dumping them across the city over several days past midnight.

Narco analysis, also known as truth serum, involves the intravenous administration of a drug ( such as sodium pentothal, scopolamine, and sodium amytal ) that causes the person undergoing it to enter into various stages of anesthesia. In the hypnotic stage, the person becomes less inhibited and is more likely to divulge information, which would usually not be revealed in the conscious state. The investigating agencies use this test after other evidence does not provide a clear picture of the case. The Delhi Police had earlier said it sought Poonawala’s narco analysis test as his responses during interrogation were ” deceptive ” in nature.
