New Delhi: A Delhi Court on Friday ordered to conduct a ‘narco test’ for Aaftab Amin Poonawala in the gruesome Shradha Walkar killing case.

What is a Narco Test? 

Narco analysis tests involve the injection of sodium pentothal, which is also called truth serum.

The administration of this drug lowers an individual’s self-consciousness, thereby allowing them to speak without restrictions.

This takes place when the person becomes less self-conscious and enters a hypnotic state. This stage allows examiners to question the subject and get real answers and is done only under the observation of a psychologist, investigating officer, or forensic expert.

It is said to be an alternative to other commonly known third-degree treatments used by investigating departments. But in the for Aftab Ponawalla, the Delhi court directed the Investigation Officer (IO) not to use any third-degree measures.

The test is conducted only after the subject is found medically fit; the person is injected with the hypnotic Sodium Pentothal, also known as Thiopentone. The dosage depends on their age, gender, and other medical conditions.
