Forensic Lab

The Forensic Science laboratory was established to create a suitable environment to propagate the knowledge of forensic science amongst the students. With this effect, we organize several innovative training sessions, included in the forensic science elective, to impress upon the students the various kinds of analysis that fall under the purview of forensic science and the procedural imperatives that must be followed to ensure a fair trial. The laboratory is equipped with microscopes, anatomical models, fingerprinting kits, weapons database, commonly used drugs and poisons, blood pattern analysis set-up etc. to create a knowledgeable and varied forensic database for students to learn from and to analyze forensic evidence first-hand.

Students learn about the forensic investigative process works by participating in a mock crime scene where each team of students will take part in evidence collection, packaging, analysis and later rely upon their knowledge of forensic science to question, contest and/or refute the admissibility and validity of evidences in moot courts. Laboratory work also includes processes such as latent fingerprinting, fibre analysis, glass and paint chips examination, blood pattern analysis etc. This helps students understand the scope and limitations of forensic evidence and analysis and the appropriate forensic procedures that need to be observed.
