Hello Hemant,

The forensic science is a field where scientists are involved in solving the crime related cases. The forensic scientists gather the clues from the crime scene and analyze in laboratory and present the report in court to prove anyone innocent or culprit. They are primarily concerned with the contact trace materials associated with crimes. This follows the truth that every contact leaves the trace which will help in catching the culprit and solve the case.



In contrast to popular perception, it is a highly scientific field, where the forensic scientist uses sophisticated techniques and tolls to gather the information. The interest of many person towards the forensic science has increased over the years primarily due the nature of job of a crime investigator shown in television serials, which also close to the reality.
