SPECIAL judge Prachi Kulkarni on Wednesday permited the Pune police to conduct a lie detector test on staffers working at Kumar Resort in Lonavala where a seven-year-old girl was found brutally raped and murdered last week.
Sub-Divisional Police Officer of Lonavala division Bhaskar Thorat had filed the petition on Monday. The matter was listed for hearing on Wednesday. After going through all the circumstances in the case, the judge issued orders in favour of the police.
The court also appealed the residents to come forward with information about the main suspect who is still absconding. Suspects in the case include hotel staffer Ajay Shankar Dodade (42), who is from Wardha.
