Sister Abhaya Case: HC rejects order to examine two doctors
On Thursday the Kerala High Court rejected the Thiruvananthapuram CBI special court order issuing charges to the two doctors, who had conducted narco-analysis test on the accused in the Sister Abhaya case, for examination as part of the trial. Justice Alexander Thomas issued the order on the petition filed by Fr Thomas Kottur and Sister Sephy, who are accused in the case.
The court had issued charges to doctors N Krishnaveni and Pravin Parvathappa for their examination with respect to the narco-analysis test. The petitioners said the charges was ordered without hearing the public prosecutor or the defence counsel.
The petitioner also added that it would give extreme benefits to the prosecution to bring in invalid evidence on record and would cause irrevocable injury to the petitioners. The court observed that evidence regarding the narco-analysis conducted on the accused was invalid.
