Ghaziabad: CFSL chief scientist VK Mahapatra

killings.

The chief scientist of the Delhi-based Central Forensic
Science Laboratory appeared as a witness in three cases,
including those of Choti Payal, Pushpa kidnappings and
murders, before judge Shyam Lal.

He confirmed that CBI had sent 13 knives duly sealed to
his laboratory, clothes and some other material which he
tested, but neither found blood stains on the knives and other
material nor traced any semen on clothes.

scientific examination.
