Sacked Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) Gopal Das, who is the prime accused in Minister Naba Das murder case, was brought to Jharsuguda from Gandhinagar on Sunday night after completion of his polygraph and narco tests.

According to sources, Das will be produced before the JMFC court in Jharsuguda as his third phase remand period is ending today.

Das was brought to Raipur from Gandhinagar via air and then he was taken to Jharsuguda via road amid tight security. At present, he is lodged at the Airport police station located at Talapatia, sources informed.

Meanwhile, the Crime Branch neither disclosed the findings from polygraph and narco tests conducted at Gandhinagar, nor made the reports of LVA and psychoanalysis tests conducted at Jharsuguda public.

Notably, the narco test, also known as the ‘Truth serum test’, was performed at the Directorate of Forensic Science Lab (DFSL) in Gandhinagar.

Das also underwent two polygraph tests earlier. However, his revelation about his intention behind the murder (in the tests if any) is still a mystery. The ballistic test of the firearm has also been performed.

It is worthwhile to mention here that, Naba Das was allegedly shot by Gopal Das near Gandhi Chhak at Brajarajnagar in Jharsuguda district on January 29. 

Das, who sustained serious injuries in the attack, was first rushed to Jharsuguda District Headquarters Hospital and then he was airlifted to a private hospital in Bhubaneswar where he succumbed to his injuries.
