polygraph tests measure a person's “heart rate/blood pressure, respiration, and skin conductivity.” The purpose of the test is usually to prove whether or not a person committed a crime. The test cannot actually test for honesty, however.

 Forcing an accused to undergo polygraph or narcoanalysis tests is seen as a violation of Article 20(3), making consent essential. Article 21 and Human Rights: Polygraph tests are criticized for mental torture, potentially violating the right to life and privacy under Article 21.

If you have been defrauded by any person and if you possess evidence for such fraudulent activity you may lodge a criminal complaint against the offender with the local police and since he is a lawyer you can give a complaint to the concerned bar council also
