RTI reveals that police never called forensic experts on accident sites
The reply to an application filed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act has revealed that the Gurgaon police tend to avoid crime scene evidences in cases of road accidents. The reply from the police states that no forensic team or expert has ever been called at the site of the accidental deaths and no forensic evidences have ever been collected in cases registered under Section 304-A. The reply also showed that the cases under Section 304-A have been rising steadily in Gurgaon.
The police commissioner told that he had issued orders regarding collection of forensic evidences in cases of deaths by accidents. However, he declined to comment on the facts revealed by the RTI reply. The DCP (Headquarters) told that the police use to collect forensic evidences and the said RTI reply is merely because of some misinterpretation of the questions asked in the RTI query.
However, the experts believe that non-collection of forensic evidences weaken the police case against the perpetrators and ignore the possibility of the accidents being premeditated murder.
