  1. Sir,
    I am interested to know something about finger-print .
    1. whether it is open to investigating agencies to take specimen finger print of accused (not any past history) prior to his official arrest?

    2. Is it open for finger-print expert to keep chance finger print with him collected from scene of offence for more than one month and not informed to court.

    • Dear, 1. Yes! 2. it can be confirmed from the rules regarding maintaining the records and disposing of the same. Ofcourse, it should have been informed to court in appropriate time when asked by the court.
