The conflicting claims of the Rohtak sisters and their alleged harassers whom they beat up in a bus will now be subjected to polygraph tests. A Rohtak court has granted permission to the Special Investigation Team of the Haryana Police to conduct polygraph tests on all of them.

It was around a fortnight ago that Pooja and Aarti had thrashed three men who allegedly harassed them in a bus. The two were returning from a Rohtak college to Sonepat in Haryana Roadways bus.

The video of the incident went viral, prompting the police to take swift action. The three men were arrested.

The girls alleged that they were molested and thrown out of the bus.

While the girls were initially lauded for their courage, contradictory versions of the incident soon came forward.

Some passengers of the bus, including women, submitted affidavits that the men did not harass the two sisters but it was a fight over a seat.

The Haryana government then decided to withhold its decision to honour the girls on Republic Day.

The sisters then requested that their polygraph test be conducted so that the truth becomes clear.

They also demanded that the passengers who submitted the affidavits undergo the same test.
