INDIA. Mumbai: The Maharashtra State CID achieved laurels by winning the most prestigious “Sir Aziz-ul-Hak” trophy in the field of fingerprint science at the recent All India Fingerprint Director Conference, conducted by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) in New Delhi.

At the conference, the candidates who proved their mettle in the “All India Board Examination for Fingerprint Expert” as well as police personnel involved in the accurate investigation were felicitated.

The evidence submitted by Assistant Police Inspector (API) Sarika Tilekar, attached to the Finger Prints Bureau, CID, Mumbai, was awarded the first prize in the “Smart Use of Fingerprint Science in Investigation” since the evidence submitted by her was proved most crucial in convicting the rape accused.

A fingerprint expert visited the scene of the crime and developed a chance print which was then found to be identical to the accused. This highly sensitive case proceeded in the fast-track court and important evidence submitted by Tilekar was admitted by the court. The accused was convicted of the death penalty. As such Tilekar was given the first prize in the “Smart Use of Fingerprint Science in Investigation”.
