FSL ups staff strength

The Directorate of Forensic Science Laboratories has added 360 personnel to its existing manpower. It aims to clear as many as 65,000 pending cases by April next year. These cases have been pending for over a year across the state. In addition, the plan to start two new forensic laboratories in the state is also being considered. The laboratories will be in Nanded and Kolhapur. Presently, the DFSL has a laboratory at Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Nashik and Aurangabad.
These pending cases are related to cyber crime, tape division, toxicology, DNA, biology, prohibition and excise department.
Senior Maharashtra police officials have said that forensic evidence will play a major role in increasing their conviction rates. Present Director General of Police, Sanjeev Dayal had even expressed his desire of having a forensic lab in every district, in the presence of the chief minister, the home minister and the media.
“We shall be trying our best to clear all the pending cases by April 2014. Also, we now have sufficient infrastructure and chemicals,” said Dr. M.K. Malve, director, Forensic Science Laboratories and chemical analyser to the state government.
These 360 personnel belong to Class 2, 3 and 4 grades. These are 100 odd assistant chemical analysers who are postgraduates in chemistry or biology, around 100 scientific assistants who hold a BSC degree in chemistry and 100 laboratory attendants.
