Chandigarh, June 22, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

To ensure expeditious disposal of cases related to POCSO Act and crime against the women, the Punjab Cabinet has okayed the creation of 35 posts for setting up of three new units of DNA, Cyber Forensic and Audio/Voice Analysis in the Forensic Science Laboratory, SAS Nagar (Mohali) ,with an annual outlay of Rs. 1.56 crore.

Disclosing this here today, a spokesperson of the Chief Minister’s Office said that the amended Section 173 of CrPC requires that trial of sexual offences cases should be completed within two months. DNA sampling and testing has also been made mandatory for all cases of sexual offences.

To ensure the effective implementation of these mandates, the cabinet, under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, has cleared the proposal of Home Department to strengthen the DNA Unit in the State Forensic Lab by increasing the DNA units from one to two.

Also, at present, cases of Cyber Forensic and Audio/Voice Analysis are sent to other scientific laboratories for examination, since there is no facility for their examination in the State Forensic Lab. With the Cabinet nod, one unit each of Cyber Forensic and Audio/Voice Analysis will now be set up in the Forensic Science Lab at SAS Nagar (Mohali).
