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.

      From the Rohtak incident, it is clear that only criminals and law-breakers like these girls can stay safely and peacefully in this country, not good and law abiding people. Not only molestation, dowry laws are also being misused heavily in this country. Police seems to be biased in favor of these girls from the beginning. May I ask why the Police officials who arrested the three guys without doing any primary investigation and the media houses who defamed the boys and now also they are biased , either silent or making propaa to save the girls, like "First post", "TOI" & "NDTV" are not punished yet. Moreover lie-detector test is not considered as a proof in court, so it can be an attempt by these fraud girls to waste time and divert the attention.
