Once again the Fingerprint
experts of the Central Finger Print Bureau (CFPB) have done the NCRB proud by
cracking an inter state crime puzzle. This time round the CFPB was called upon
for its exemplary services for the scene of crime Cr. No. 176/2009 u/s 457 &
380 IPC of PS Golagumbaz, Bijapur City, in the southern sate of Karnataka.
This is a case of the great human endeavor and cutting edge technology coming
together to bring down the culprit of such a horrendous crime to justice.
Skills and tenacity of the FP experts was once again pushed to the limits as
this was a case of double trouble. The two chance prints that were recovered
from the crime scene were partial prints with limited ridge characteristics.
After extensive and intense analysis by the FP experts of CFPB the first
chance print was reported TRACED against a record slip from November 2009. The
second chance print had to be manually traced and it was successfully matched
to the same record slip with the help of the FP experts from CFPB. These were
processed in Fingerprint Analysis & Criminal Tracing System (FACTS). The
expert efforts were put in by Shri A. K. Gaynar, Sub-Inspector, CFPB under the
able guidance of Shri M.V.S.S Sastri, Inspector of CFPB.
With both the chance prints matching to a single record slip the identity of
the culprit was established beyond doubt. He was Mohd. Abdul Farukh Seikh
alias Farukh S/o Mohd. Zameel. He was convicted earlier by the Metropolitian
Magistrate, Delhi, under the Arms Act, on 10-01-2007 to undergo RI for 5
months vide FIR No. 122/07, PS Kotwali, Delhi.
The experts were handsomely rewarded by Director General, NCRB.

The Fingerprint Experts of
Central Finger Print Bureau, NCRB, New Delhi, have successfully identified a
culprit with the help of chance prints developed from the scene of crime in
Cr. No. 800/2009 U/s 395 IPC of Peerkankaranai Police Station, Chennai. On

Police Station limits, Chennai, assaulted the lady inmate and took away the
Ford Fiesta Car of the inmate, about 40 Gold sovereigns and Rs. 3 lakhs in
cash. The culprits were speaking in Hindi. Three chance prints involved in
Dacoity under Peerkankaranai Police Station, Chennai, were received for search
in Central Finger Print Bureau, NCRB, New Delhi. The three chance prints
received were partial prints which were difficult to decipher in view of the
limited area of the prints available. These limitations were successfully
overcome by the seasoned FP experts of CFPB. The chance prints were thoroughly
scrutinized, scanned and meticulously edited. The three chance prints were
thoroughly processed in the Fingerprint Analysis & Criminal Tracing System
(FACTS). The culprit was successfully identified as Raju Shelar S/o Dhondiba

3. FIR No. 82/2001, PS – Sawantwadi, Sindhudurg Dist., Maharashtra.

meticulous and thoroughly professional efforts of Shri S.K.Tiwari,
Sub-Inspector, CFPB under the guidance of Shri M.V.S.S.Sastri, Inspector and
overall supervision of Shri B.Roy, DySP, FACTS, CFPB. The verification by the
FP Experts calls for summoning of all the expertise in closely comparing and
co-relating the minute ridge characteristics of the chance print in their
relative positions with that of data base prints. An Inter-state Dacoity was
thus successfully cracked open. The experts were handsomely rewarded by
Director General, NCRB.
