Haryana's fourth Regional Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) has started functioning in Hisar and it will help expedite crime investigations, a spokesperson of the state police department said on Tuesday.
The spokesperson said that the new FSL has started receiving samples related to various criminal cases for examination in the narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, toxicology and serology divisions since February 12.
"The objective of establishing the regional lab is to ensure a more efficient investigation process using scientific methods. This would ensure timely preparation of reports and hence disposal of cases," the official said.
According to the official, investigations were getting delayed as police personnel would spend a lot of time in commuting to deposit a case and receive its report.
''Now with the regional lab becoming functional, results will be available at the earliest, expediting the whole investigation process,'' he said.
