Hyderabad: The AP Forensic Science Laboratory will soon begin brainwave fingerprinting tests on people involved in criminal cases with their consent. The Supreme Court had earlier passed strict orders regarding the use of the technology without the consent of the accused.
APFSL director Dr A. Sharada said that it will now buy high-end brainwave fingerprinting equipment.
“In brainwave fingerprinting a patented headgear will be put on the head with sensors to read brainwaves.
A suspect will be shown some probes like visuals of crime scenes, bombs, weapons and other related issues.
Immediately after seeing them the experimental knowledge in the brain’s hypothalamus will recognise it if he has knowledge and it will be read by the equipment,” said Dr Sharada adding that the technique is admissible as evidence in court like in the Abdul Karim Telgi stamp scam....
