Sources in the agency, which has already quizzed the Bhopal legislator several times said that in polygraph test, Singh was asked more than two dozen questions related to his relationship with Masood and Parvez.

Sources in country’s premiere  investigation agency further informed that the main purpose of the test was whether Singh knew about the murder plan allegedly hatched by Parvez, an interior designer by profession.
