Description

In the current epoch of neutrino physics, many experiments are aiming for precision measurements of oscillation parameters. Thus, various new physics scenarios which alter the neutrino oscillation probabilities in matter deserve careful investigation. Recent results from NOvA and T2K show a slight tension on their reported values of the CP violating phase $\delta_{CP}$. Since the baseline of NOvA is much larger than the T2K, the neutral current non-standard interactions (NSIs) of neutrinos with the earth matter during their propagation might play a crucial role for such discrepancy. In this context, we study the effect of a vector leptoquark which induces non-standard neutrino interactions that modify the oscillation probabilities of neutrinos in matter. We show that such interactions provide a relatively large value of NSI parameter $\varepsilon_{e \mu}$. Considering this NSI parameter, we successfully explain the recent discrepancy between the observed $\delta_{CP}$ results of T2K and NOvA. We also briefly discuss the implication of $U_3$ leptoquark on lepton flavour violating muon decay modes: $\mu \to e \gamma$ and $\mu \to ee e$.
