A Delhi court on Tuesday will make a decision over providing round-the-clock security to arms dealer Abhishek Verma in the 1984 riots, who had expressed willingness to undergo a polygraph test on the condition of round the clock security till the test takes place.
Verma, a witness in a 1984 anti-Sikh riots case allegedly involving Congress leader Jagdish Tytler, on July 6 told a Delhi court that he was ready to undergo a lie-detector test if he and his family are provided security.
He was asked to file a written affidavit in this regard before the issuance of any such orders by the court.
Verma has asked for two Protective Service Officers (PSOs), and guards outside his home round the clock.
The court had directed him to file in writing the request for security protection.
Earlier, the court had asked arms dealer Abhishek Verma, who is a witness in the case, to explain the conditions for undergoing the polygraph test.
On May 22, Tytler refused to undergo lie-detector test before the court.
Earlier in April also, Tytler refused to undergo a lie-detector test in connection with the case.
In February, the CBI had sought the court's permission for lie-detector tests on Tytler and Verma.
Tytler is accused of leading a mob in the 1984 Pul Bangash case in which three Sikhs were killed.
The CBI had earlier given a clean chit to Tytler in the case but re-opened the investigation following the December 4, 2015, order in the wake of Verma's allegations.
