A local court Wednesday kept its order reserved till July 1 on the police plea seeking permission to subject Saurashtra University (SU) senator Rajendransing alias Rajbha Jadeja in connection with the alleged murder of his business partner and a distant relative Jaypalsinh Jhala.

After Jadeja’s polygraph by Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL),Gandhinagar,early this month concluded that he was lying to the investigators,Malaviyanagar police moved the court on June 24 to seek permission for subjecting him to narco test. However,Jadeja opposed the police plea saying he was a diabetic. The matter came up for hearing in the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate P P Shah. After hearing arguments of both the sides,the judge kept his order reserved till July 1.

Jhala,who was partner in Jadeja’s land dealing business was found murdered on May 7. In his complaint,Jhala’s father had named Jadeja as the prime suspect saying he had threatened his son after dispute over a piece of land.

The senator was arrested on May 7. However,he is telling investigators that he has nothing to do with the murder.
