Forensic science labs to be set up in Arunachal

Itanagar: The Centre has sanctioned a full-fledged regional forensic science laboratory and a mobile forensic unit for Arunachal Pradesh, state Home Minister Tako Dabi said on Thursday.

While the main laboratory has been proposed to be set up at a cost of Rs eight crore at Pasighat in East Siang district, the Rs one crore mobile one would be a vehicle which would reach the place of crime to collect evidences before they were lost, Dabi told a press conference here.

Dabi said with the crimes spiraling in the state, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram has honoured his plea to approve the laboratories to facilitate scientific investigation to arrest culprits.
