She elaborated to the children on the different genres covered under Forensic Sciences. She also demonstrated the different evidences and documents needed for the investigation of a crime. Forensic Science is a sea of information and evidences and it depends on the skill and efficiency of the forensic department to skillfully and efficiently come to a proper conclusion. Priyanka also answered to some of their queries on what are the different names given to different kinds of subject areas and evidences under testing. With over 30 million cases pending in the courts, 2.6 million cases under investigation and 2 lakh evidences pending in the Forensic lab in India, there’s a dire need of Forensic scientists in our country. For a country catering to 1.25 billion population, only 5000 forensic scientists aren’t enough to make up for the appeal of the masses.
