Facts Don’t Lie. People Do

Dr. Moumita Sinha, Assistant Professor, Department of Forensic Science, Kalinga University, Raipur (C.G.)

Facts are not opinions, so a person cannot lie with facts. However, a person can lie by manipulating facts, such as by omitting certain facts or by deliberately misrepresenting facts. For example, a person could tell a partial truth by only mentioning a few facts that support their argument while omitting other facts that would weaken their argument.

Forensic science can be very helpful in determining the truth in such situations. By examining physical evidence, forensic scientists can determine what really happened and can identify what facts were omitted or misrepresented. For example, forensic scientists can analyze a crime scene and analyze evidence such as fingerprints, DNA, and fibers to reconstruct the scene and determine what really happened. Additionally, forensic scientists can analyze documents and digital evidence to determine if they have been tampered with or misrepresented. Forensic science is a powerful tool that can be used to help uncover the truth in criminal investigations. By analyzing physical evidence such as DNA, fingerprints, and other trace evidence, forensic scientists can help establish facts and help law enforcement identify suspects. In addition, forensic scientists can identify patterns and trends in crime scenes and link evidence to a particular suspect. Through the use of computer technology, forensic scientists can also reconstruct crime scenes, allowing investigators to better understand the events that occurred. It is also used to identify the presence of drugs and other substances in the body, which can help establish a timeline of events and provide vital information on drug-related crimes. Finally, this science can be used to analyze documents and handwriting, helping to determine the authenticity of documents or uncover forgeries. Overall, forensic science is an invaluable tool in helping to elucidate the truth.
