The Rajasthan Anti Terror Squad (ATS) has moved an Ajmer court for permission to conduct a narco-analysis test on Devendra Gupta, who was arrested for his alleged role in the 2007 Ajmer Dargah blast. Gupta is allegedly linked to Hindu outfits.

According to the ATS, it has moved a plea asking grant of permission from the Ajmer Chief Judicial Magistrate to conduct the narco-test on Gupta. The court is expected to take the matter up on Monday.

The ATS has arrested three persons in the blast case -- Devendra from Ajmer and Chandrashekhar and Vishnu Patidar from Madhya Pradesh.

Gupta and Chandrashekar are in police remand and are being interrogated by the ATS in Jaipur.

The ATS brought Patidar to Jaipur on Saturday.

Police are also probing Gupta''s alleged links with Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, a key accused in the Malegaon blast case.

Chandrasekhar, who is also suspected to have connections with Hindu right-wing groups, is alleged to be a key member of the terror module involved in the Ajmer blast, the sources said.

Patidar was arrested by a five-member team of Rajasthan ATS from village Khardonkala in Shajapur district in Madhya Pradesh for his suspected involvement in the Ajmer blast, Additional Superintendent of Police Ramji Shrivastava said.
