Court Rejects Demand for Brain Mapping and Narco Test of Accused in RPFF Constable Murder Case

In a recent development in the case of the Railway Protection Force (RPF) constable Chetan Singh, who shot and killed four individuals on the Jaipur-Mumbai Express last month, the court has dismissed the prosecution’s request for conducting brain mapping and narco tests on the accused. The court stated that the accused’s refusal to undergo such tests is within his fundamental rights and compelling him would be inappropriate.

Chetan Singh, a constable with the RPF, had committed the shocking crime on the 31st of July. The incident had sent shockwaves throughout the nation. After obtaining the consent of the families of the deceased, the prosecution had appealed to the court for permission to conduct brain mapping, narco analysis, and polygraph tests on the accused. The prosecution argued that given the severity of the crime, these tests were crucial to gather comprehensive evidence.

However, the court’s decision to reject the appeal comes as a result of acknowledging the accused’s right to remain silent and not undergo tests that he is unwilling to participate in. The court emphasized that respecting the accused’s fundamental rights is of utmost importance and any form of coercion cannot be employed.

The families of the victims had earlier given their approval for the testing to be carried out, hoping that it would provide deeper insights into the motive and circumstances surrounding the crime. They believed that such tests could potentially uncover critical evidence that might help in understanding the heinous act.

The defense’s argument rested on the principle of an individual’s right to privacy and their choice to refuse participation in tests that might infringe upon their mental and emotional well-being. The court’s ruling reflects a careful balance between the demands of justice and an individual’s rights.

The case has raised discussions about the ethics and legality of conducting such tests on unwilling individuals, even in cases of serious crimes. Legal experts have weighed in, stating that while these tests can be valuable tools for investigations, they must be approached with caution and in full consideration of an individual’s rights.

The court’s decision marks a significant point in the legal proceedings of this high-profile case. As the trial continues, the focus will remain on gathering evidence through permissible means while respecting the accused’s rights and ensuring a fair trial process.
