To outsmart criminals a state-of-the art forensic science lab at an estimated cost of Rs 64 cr has come in Niwari near Muradnagar, Ghaziabad. The lab was today formally inaugurated by the Director General of Police (DGP), Uttar Pradesh, OP Singh in presence of senior police officials of Meerut Zone and Ghaziabad & Noida. The forensic lab will cater to West UP and even Delhi-NCR. Complicated cases requiring detailed forensic examination are expected the worked out sooner as the lab will give results in 1-2 months at the most. Earlier, cracking complicated cases was a challenging job and the police had to be overly dependent of different forensic labs across the country.
A team of 174 forensic scientists will be working tirelessly to perform several tests. The lab had been delayed some reason or the other but now it has finally taken shape. Some of the tests that will be conducted here are: narco test, brain mapping, chemical tests, ballistic tests, DNA, computer forensics, handwriting analysis, toxicology test, document analysis, bio-serology,among others.
