The uncle's statement comes a day after Sengar was taken into seven-day police custody after a 17-hour interrogation session. The test was carried out at the Lohia hospital here. The action came barely hours the Allahabad High Court ordered the probe agency to arrest Sengar, stating that he was influencing the "law-and-order machinery".

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday arrested two persons who allegedly tried to bribe a Customs officer in Mumbai in a bid to recover seized goods worth crores.
