The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, today attended the convocation ceremony of the Gujarat Forensic Sciences University in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.

He described the University and its students as pioneers. He appreciated the students for their persistence in selecting a stream that is conventionally believed to be unconventional but is highly essential for today’s age. He said that these traits of self-belief and determination would help the students in times to come.

The Prime Minister said that a robust forensic science setup helps in ensuring public safety and curbing crime much the same way as an efficient police force and a competent judiciary.

Forensic science is crucial since it makes a potential criminal fear that he is very likely to be caught if he commits a crime, the Prime Minister said.

“Not just India, but from across the globe, Law Enforcement Agencies are coming forward to ask for help from your university. Your university is getting a reputation at the international level by helping many countries by providing training and consultancy to their people.”

“I have been told that in the last five years, Gujarat Forensic Science University has trained more than six thousand officers. The University has trained more than 700 police officers from more than 20 countries. After returning to their respective countries, the officers are using their knowledge and skills to keep their country and society safe today. It is a matter of great pride for all of you and Gujarat that this University is playing such a decisive role in Global Security on the strength of its training and education.”

“Friends, criminals and ways of committing crime are constantly changing. To deal with the rapidly changing crime scenario, you have to develop newer techniques to make it clear that we will not spare the criminals. The Government is establishing a State of the Art lab at Central Forensic Science Laboratory, Chandigarh. I am confident that in the coming times, we will be able to speedily and accurately investigate crimes,” Mr. Modi told the audience.
