Gandhinagar: Bharatiya Janata Party`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Saturday claimed that Gujarat has taken the lead in setting up the first forensic science university in the world.
Addressing the closing ceremony of Golden Jubilee celebrations of Bar Council of India here, Modi said, “Gujarat is the first state in the world which has a forensic science university.”
“The need of the hour is mapping of the crime and litigation pattern in the country,” the Gujarat chief minister added.
Stating that pass-outs from the Gujarat`s forensic science university will help in solving criminal cases and increase conviction rates, Modi hoped that the nano technology department of the university would come out with a technology to prepare bullet-proof jackets to protect the life of jawans fighting Naxalites and terrorists.
Modi said special skill is required for tackling offences like cyber crime. He added that, “It`s the responsibility of government to ensure that quality infrastructure and human resource are made available to the legal system.”
