Narco Analysis test may be banned

New Delhi, May 27 (ANI): A ban on narco analysis test can be recommended by the national Law Commission, as it violates the basic human rights.

Revelations made under the influence of the drugs cannot be considered as reliable and violated basic human rights, the Law Commission’s report suggests.

The proposed report claims that hardened criminals may lie despite being under the influence of drugs. Others may also successfully disguise actual facts.

The report claims that several police forces across the world have found narco tests as unreliable means to find truth.

The Commission headed by Justice A R Lakshmanan took up the issue following a request from the Forensic Science Society of India. (ANI)
