Step to ensure a comprehensive investigation with no lags
Reportedly, the workshop was marked by the presence of SP and ASP (headquarters), in-charge of Regional Forensic Science Laboratory and other officers including Indrapal Singh Thakur, Avinash Puri, Anubha Gang. As per reports, expert officials led the training schedule for ASI and SI level officers informing them about the specifications of scientific investigation. A book by an authority on the subject was also released as a part of this event.
The senior officials from the police department present on the occasion instructed the ASI and SI level officers that the process of enquiry and inspection must be meticulously followed in women-related crimes. If there is even slight ignorance during the procedure, the entire investigation can turn in favour of the accused. Thereby, it is pertinent to ensure that all guidelines are strictly adhered to and a comprehensive investigation is conducted. While forensic and scientific evidence is important in all cases, they become more important in assuring justice in cases of crime against women.
