SURAT: Surat District Legal Service Authority Board and Surat District Bar Association (SDBA) organized a seminar on ‘The aspect of forensic science relating to chemical analysis report, examination of documents and postmortem’ here on Saturday.

At least 800 criminal lawyers practising in the district and sessions court took part in the seminar held in the presence of Justice A L Dave, principal district and sessions Judge B U Joshi.

Forensic science experts from Surat and Gandhinagar such as Hitesh Sanghavi, assistant director, FSL, Gandhinagar, R N Guna, assistant director (documents), FSL, Gandhinagar and forensic and medico legal expert Dr Vinesh Shah were also present.

SDBA president Ashit Mehta said, “The seminar was aimed at spreading legal awareness among the lawyers about forensic science and its legal aspects. There are many aspects in the field of forensic science that are still untouched and the lawyers need to understand them closely in order to deal with criminal cases in courts.”

Dr Shah said, “Most of the lawyers consider postmortem only to know the cause of death. But there are many other aspects to be looked for in the postmortem, which the lawyers miss during legal proceedings in the courts. The aspects are time of death, mode of death, position of the body at the time of death, weapon of assault, type of injury, age of injury etc.”
