December 18, 2017

PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Inspector General of Police Salahuddin Mehsud has inaugurated official website (www.kpfsl.gov.pk) for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Forensic Sciences Laboratory.

The website is to streamline the working of various disciplines of forensic labs, SOPs, for operating the equipment, training of experts, forensic examination and compiling of the forensic reports.

Around 60,000 pending cases were processed by the FSL during the current year, with zero pendency at the moment.

In order to further streamline and make the forensic examination/reporting transparent and accessible to stakeholders, the FSL website contain details of various labs, forensic services available, SOPs for identification, collection and packing of physical and circumstantial evidence and show status/ date of dispatch of forensic reports.

This will not only show status of the forensic reports but will also indicate those responsible for delay in submission of exhibits to FSL or delay by the forensic experts in conducting the test/examination.

The IGP also approved the establishment of first ever explosive testing lab and digital and audio-visual lab in the KP FSL.

These labs will assist the investigation agencies in working out heinous cases, ie terrorism, extortion, dacoity, murder, etc.

Salahuddin Mehsud said that such updated online information about the cases submitted/examined at FSL will result in building confidence of honourable judges in the FSL and also identify the investigation officers who delay submitting of exhibits to FSL which badly affect investigation of the cases.

The IGP instructed to speed up the ongoing renovation and revamping of the FSL to make it compatible with international standards.

The IGP praised the efforts of the director FSL Rabnawaz Khan and staff of FSL for their valuable contribution to the KP FSL and gave Rs200,000 cash reward to the officials working at the FSL.
