DGP Sharma flags off 3 Mobile Forensic Vans

Taking its battle to improve law and order situation in Nagaland, Director General of Police (DGP), Rupin Sharma on Monday flagged off three Mobile Forensic Vans (MFV) at PHQ, Kohima which will be stationed in Dimapur FSL.
Speaking at the programme, DGP Sharma informed that these vans would aid the police in nabbing culprits as they were equipped to conduct preliminary investigation facilities such as – Finger print taking kit, Latent finger print development kit, Foot & Tire Print casting kit, Forensic Light Source, Blood Detection kit, Semen detection kit, Evidence packing and collecting kit and DNA Collection & Sexual assault kit.
Although there is a functioning forensic science lab in the state, DGP informed that it was not up to the optimum capacity and hoped that the forensic vans would go a long way in collecting on-crime-spot evidence and management of the crime scene successfully, adding that procuring the vans was a small step in enhancing the forensic facilities and a new beginning for the state.
Sharma disclosed that the powder for finger print detection comes only in limited amount and once exhausted, the rest of the kit cannot be further used which would be constraint in the sample collection. He also informed that they will try to enhance their capacity at forensics as the quality of investigation depends on the quality of forensic evidence collected and hoped that the state government and the government of India would further help in enhancing the forensic facilities in days to come. tHighlighting on the war launched against drugs in the state, Sharma stated that several cases have been detected however, due to lack of forensics, the samples would be sent outside the state and further wait on the results to arrive. However, he expressed hope that the new vans would bear fruits and ensure effective improvement in solving cases.
Approved by Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), under Police Modernisation in 2021-22, to enhance the state police force, the MVF vans were equipped with crime scene instigation kit, with all necessary formalities completed and ready to function.
