Crime free society is a dream of every human individual on earth. But it never happened ever since the origin of humans on the planet earth. Crime is always perpetuated in one form or the other. With the advancements in science and technology criminals also became high-tech and commit crimes with scientific methods. To combat the scientific criminals and for the prevention and investigation of crime, scientific tools and technologies are imperative for the criminal justice system.
