Find­ing killer: A test of CBI’s foren­sic skills

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

The

CBI has been en­trusted with the probe into the mur­der of seven-year-old Prad­hyumn Thakur at Ryan In­ter­na­tional School (Bhondsi) in Gur­gaon, again putting to test the agency’s skills in in­ves­ti­gat­ing heinous crimes. The CBI’s prow­ess in foren­sic ev­i­dence anal­y­sis will be bol­stered by hav­ing at its dis­posal ex­perts from Cen­tral Foren­sic Sci­ence Lab­o­ra­tory, Cen­tre for DNA Fin­ger­print­ing and Di­ag­nos­tics and doc­tors from AIIMS who will help it draw out the se­quence of events lead­ing to the death of Prad­hyumn, the weapon used for his mur­der, and the ex­act time of the crime. In its at­tempt to find out whether it was ac­tu­ally the school bus con­duc­tor Ashok Ku­mar — ar­rested as the main sus­pect by Gur­gaon po­lice — who killed the boy with a kitchen knife af­ter try­ing to sex­u­ally as­sault him, the CBI can use sci­en­tific tests like lie-de­tec­tion, narco-anal­y­sis and psy­cho-anal­y­sis tests on the sus­pect.
