OB Bureau

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Police will train about 90 officers on Thursday on various forensic techniques which can be used to probe and prosecute crimes of sexual violence.

During an investigation of a sexual violence case, DNA evidence can make or break the outcome. It has become a routine part of investigating and prosecuting all types of crimes. It is often an important tool in achieving justice for survivors of sexual assault.

The training programme will be organised by the Crime against Women and Children Wing (CAW&CW) in the presence of DGP Sunil Kumar Bansal.

According to reports, principal scientific officer of Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) Central Forensic Science Laboratory BK Mohapatra, and retired DGP rank officer, Keshav Kumar, who is also a visiting faculty member at National Forensic Sciences University in Gandhinagar, will train the police officers about various scientific methods.

In the first phase, officers from 10 districts will take part in the programme.

It is pertinent to mention here that the DGP rank officer Keshav Kumar was able to secure convictions of at least 61 accused persons based on forensic applications during the investigations through the latest scientific aids and tools.

“We have also invited the experts of a private firm to share information on rapid DNA analysis technology. A panel discussion will also be held on DNA techniques which can be used to probe sexual offences,” ADG CAW&CW, Rekha Lohani told TNIE.

State Forensic Science Laboratory (SFSL) Director Rajesh Kumar, SCB Medical College and Hospital’s Forensic Medicine and Toxicology Department’s head Geeta Sahu, and other officials will guide the police officers regarding various scientific methods to probe sexual offences, the reports added.
