1st National Workshop – Forensic Science: From Crime Scene to Court of Law


Forensics is the application of various scientific methods and principles to investigate criminal and civil actions which are of interest to the legal systems Forensic science education and training is of prime importance for criminal justice system, therefore, law enforcement agencies of the country must be well-equipped and trained with the latest technology. This workshop is therefore meant to equip students and researchers with emerging field of forensic science.


This workshop provides an overview of the main concepts of Forensic science. It will cover different technologies used in the field of forensic science for evaluation of physical evidence obtained from the crime scene. Special emphasize will be given to field of Crime scene management and investigation, Forensic DNA and Serology, Latent Fingerprinting and Polygraph testing. Hands-on training will be provided to participants for the detection of blood, semen, saliva and comparing fingerprints. The work-shop will also serve as a platform for young researchers to interact with senior scientists/ experts in the area. The workshop will provide an opportunity to the students, from remote areas to conduct experiments and to get benefits from professional experts of the field. It will provide an opportunity for the lawyers to understand forensic reports issued by the laboratories.


 1. Crime Scene Management and Investigation

Speaker: Dr. Nouman Rasool (PhD, Ex-supervisor, DNA Department, PFSA)

This session will acquaint participants with importance of crime scene and its preservation, Locard’s exchange principle, the type of crime scene with reference to location, type of crime, size and suspect, Types of crimes, Importance of physical evidence and its proper identification, collection and packaging, Importance of Chain of custody, Inspection and evaluation of evidence, importance of forensic reports and their interpretation in the court of law.

Practical Session:

Detection of body fluids (Blood Semen and Saliva).

This session will impart hands-on training to the participants regarding detection of blood, semen and salvia in a crime scene

2. Latent Fingerprint Examination

Speaker: Dr. Muhammad Yaseen (PhD, Ex-Forensic Scientist, LFD)

This session will explant latent fingerprints that are usually left at crime investigations or on objects recovered from crime scenes, and forensically analyzed by la-tent fingerprint experts with the application of chemical or physical methods. The importance of unique finger-printing pattern,

Practical Session:

Detecting and comparing fingerprints

Hands-on  training  session  will   be conducted for the development and comparison fingerprints obtained from different crime scenes.


 3. Polygraph

Speaker: Ms. Ammara Shujaat (M.Phil, Ex-Forensic Scientist, Polygraph)

This session will deal with Polygraph testing also called’ lie detector’ is an important technique for narrowing down investigations and providing various investigation leads. The physiological basis of what happens when we speak lie and how it can be measured and analyzed is an important point of discussion. The authenticity of the procedure and reliability of the test has been admitted in many countries. Polygraph is being used in many countries for criminal and civil investigation, intelligence and counterintelligence investigations and in private sectors. The interpretation of test results is an important aspect of the testing. Many cases can be solved on the basis of ‘lie detector’ polygraph testing.


4. Forensic Evidence in Judicial System of Pakistan

Speaker: Mr. Muzamil Rasool (Advocate, High court)

This session will describe the fundamental role of Forensic Science in the criminal justice system, providing crucial information about the evidence to the trier of fact. The availability of forensic DNA technology in the Pakistan necessitates the amendment of current rules of evidence admissibility to incorporate scientific advances which enables the judiciary to better appreciate the value of physical evidence.
