>biometric evidence to be accepted in court

>IN a breakthrough move to keep up with innovative forensics to solve crimes and ensure justice, the government is updating several age-old laws so that biometric and electronic evidences are admissible in a court of law, writes Shariful Islam.
Currently, the courts in the country are not bound by the law to accept biometric and electronic records as evidences.
As part of the landmark initiative, a nine-member committee headed by Saiful Alam, the deputy inspector general (DIG) of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), formulated a draft law titled Evidence (amendment) Ordinance 2007 that would replace or amend relevant sections of the Evidence Act of 1872.
Furthermore, the same committee also formulated an entirely new law titled Identification of Convicted, Suspected, Arrested and Crime Scene Related Persons Ordinance, 2007 that would replace the Identification of Prisoners and Accused Persons Act of 1920.
