CVC urges govt to use private forensic investigators

Last updated on: April 05, 2010 12:54 IST
The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has issued an advisory on making use of the professional organisations which have expertise in forensic science to resolve complex criminal and civil disputes.

The advisory sent out to the vigilance officers of banks, public sector undertakings and other government organisations says: "The Commission has come across certain skills and tools that professional organisations, non-profit organisations possess in field of forensic sciences that could be important for investigations."

The CVC says the organisations can improve the quality of their investigations through use of "forensic tools and expertise for ascertaining facts that could be crucial for arriving at definite conclusions in cases, where forensic examination is considered essential."

However without suggesting the professionals whose help can be taken, the advisory adds: "The organisation can take their own decision based on their assessment of the capabilities, quality and delivery in time of their service by such professional organisations."
