Women, children to have special DNA labs dedicated to tackle sexual assault and rape cases

In a move that will help women and children get their due justice, special advanced DNA labs built at a cost of 99.76 crore from the Nirbhaya Fund will be coming up for the first time in India.
The foundation of these first-of-its-kind labs was laid by Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi on Friday as part efforts to reduce the backlog of women and child crime cases needing advanced forensic analysis.
