THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: DNA has proved to be the most crucial evidence in confirming the accused in the Jisha murder case  which  has no eye witnesses.  The police will also rely on  DNA  to prove  the case in  the court. DNA profiling, the process of identifying individuals by the characteristics of DNA, has been accepted around the world as a  reliable  forensic evidence in a case.

The police had received six DNA samples of the accused from the murder spot. While three were collected  from the bite marks on the dress of Jisha, two were recovered from her nails and another  one from  the bolt of the door of Jisha's house. It was compared with the DNA samples recovered from as many as 14 suspects in the Jisha case.

 

DNA molecules containing the genetic characteristics of individuals could be recovered from any part of the human body and even blood and saliva. DNA profiling technique has been  widely used in crime investigations since 1980s. It is also  used for paternity disputes. Investigation agencies even maintain DNA data banks of criminals  to compare them  with the samples recovered from crime spots.
