Delhi University News Today

Delhi University's MSc Forensic Science students are likely to get access to the crime scenes as interns. DU is approaching Delhi Police to allow MSc final semester students to visit the crime spots with the investigators. The Department of Anthropology of Delhi University is all set to present its proposal in front of the academic council of the university, which will meet on July 12, 2024. 

The department will write a letter of recommendation (LOR) in favour of Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs) of districts in order to provide MSc final semester students get field exposure, as reported by TOI.

Moreover, the Delhi University anthropology department will also approach esteemed lawyers to provide the students with case studies to help them gain more experience.

Visit to Crime Scene for Exposure

Reportedly, the proposal is in its final stage and seeks slight modifications in the MSc forensic science curriculum for final semester students. Besides, final-year students will intern under the Delhi Police to get exposure during their visit to the crime scenes and analysis of the forensic evidence collection process. 

Further, students will be given training in a forensic science laboratory and will be asked to prepare a project report based on their exposure to courtroom and case ethnography, as reported by NDTV. MSc Final semester students were earlier allowed to visit a crime scene on their own, but the department now plans to formally write a Letter of recommendation (LOR) to the DCPs regarding the approval.
