These submissions were made by CID (Crime) sleuths before a division bench of the Gujarat High Court comprising Chief Justice K S Radhakrishnan and Justice Akil Qureshi,on Tuesday.
P H Parmar,on whose petition the court had issued notices to the CID (crime) enquiring about the progress of the investigation,however,argued that the investigating agency must conduct narco test on Asaram Bapu,as he,according to him,was the main culprit.
