LAHORE: Jamiat Ulma Islam-Sami (JUI-S) chief Maulana Samiul Haq, who was brutally assassinated at his home in Rawalpindi last year, lied during a polygraph test conducted to determine the high-profile assassination, media sources reported on Thursday.
In his residence in Rawalpindi on November 2, 2018, Haq, an influential religious scholar and former senator, was stabbed to death. His son had said the “driver-cum-guard” of the JUI-S chief went out for fifteen minutes and came back to find him dead.
The sources said the driver of Haq, Ahmed Shah, was subjected to a polygraph test at the Punjab Forensic Science Agency, during which he continued to lie.
Shah has been asked two questions: if he knows Maulana Samiul Haq’s murderers and was he part of the plot of murder?
During the test, the sources said the driver continued to change his statements.
They further said the agency also carried out DNA and polygraph tests of nine other individuals, of whom three individual DNA samples matched the samples collected from the room of the Haq.
During the polygraph test, the said three individuals spoke truth and were not found to be associated with the murder, the sources added.
