GUWAHATI, Dec 11 - The Court of Special Judge, Assam today rejected Dibrugarh police�s plea to conduct narco analysis tests on the 23 ACS, APS and allied service officials arrested in connection with the APSC cash-for-job scam after each one of them refused to undergo the test.

The court later remanded the arrested officials back to judicial custody.

As per a Supreme Court order, narco analysis or lie detector tests cannot be conducted on a person without his or her consent. Prime accused in the cash-for-job scam, Rakesh Paul had also recently refused to undergo the narco analysis test.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court today rejected the anticipatory bail petition of Nishamoni Deka, another ACS officer wanted in connection with the scam. Special public prosecutor BK Mahajan and investigating officer Surjeet Singh Panesar were present in the apex court.

The pre-arrest bail has been rejected outright as another anticipatory petition filed by the accused is still pending with the Gauhati High Court. The hearing in the Gauhati High Court case will take place on December 15. The case diary has also been called on that date.
