Submission + - Indian SC bans Lie detector, Narco, Brain tests (ndtv.com) 1

ami.one writes: "The Supreme Court of India has ruled that forcing someone to go through brain-mapping, narco-analysis or lie detector tests is unconstitutional because "it is an unwarranted intrusion on the individual's rights."
There are no exceptions, even for terrorists. Unless the Government brings in some new legislation.
The court said that even though there may be apprehensions that hardened criminals & terrorists would benefit from this ruling, it does not deter the highest constitutional court of the country from protecting the rights guaranteed to safeguard the interests of the citizens in their interaction with the government.
