Police could not conduct polygraph test, also known as lie-detection test, on Manisha Gharti Magar’s boyfriend Rudra Narayan Chaudhari on Monday.
Chaudhari was taken in police custody on Thursday after the 17-year-old girl, sister of Nepal national football team striker Bimal Gharti Magar, was found dead in a suspicious condition in her house.
According to Inspector Prakash Sapkota, Chaudhari had to be taken to a local hospital today after he complained of headache. This delayed the polygraph test.
A team of experts has come to Nawalparasi from Kathmandu to conduct the test on the suspect.
The test will be most likely conducted tomorrow, Sapkota said.
Manisha was cremated in Kathmandu after her autopsy at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital.
