Society, Crime and Prosecution

M.K. Bhasin (Author) Surinder Nath (Author) V.N. Sehgal (Author)
Synopsis It is essential for the law enforcement agencies to identify an individual responsible for a criminal act from among a multitude of people. This is possible only if the law enforcement agency is well equipped with modern laboratories where scientific analysis of physical evidence, recovered from crime scenes is possible. It is not only physical evidence but even trace evidence like strand of fiber or hair or a latent impression of a finger, a washed blood spot, a fragment of a bone or single tooth could unfold unsolved mysteries of crime to help the law enforcement agencies. The is volume also deals with trends and legal status of lie-detection in medico-legal investigations, as well as, about the intricacies of the prosecution process. Besides dealing with the theories of crime and its causation, violence against women and the role of forensic science in the contemporary society has also been dealt with.
