BHUBANESWAR:  Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday handed over appointment letters to 33 newly recruited Laboratory Assistants of the State Forensic Science Services Organisation.

Addressing a function in the City, the Chief Minister stressed on the importance of forensic science in crime investigation. “Increased use of forensic science makes criminal investigation free and impartial by limiting the scope of inadvertent error. It also provides justice to the victims of crime,” he said.

Naveen lauded the contribution of Odisha Forensic Sciences Laboratory, which has grown into a centre of excellence, in crime investigation. The state-of-the-art DNA laboratory, which was made operational in 2015, will have a Cyber Forensic Division shortly, the Chief Minister informed.

The State Government is making all efforts to strengthen the capacity of the laboratory so that it can play a crucial role in investigation and prosecution of crime and criminals.

The Chief Minister said the newly-recruited personnel will form the backbone of scientific team of the laboratory. He exhorted the new recruits to discharge their responsibilities in a committed and dedicated manner for the cause of society.

“With proper training and skill upgradation, I am sure they would become invaluable human resources of the laboratory,” Naveen said.
