Legislation Commission of India, Lok Sabha, NCRB, Fingerprints, DNA Samples.
The DNA Technology (Use and Application) Regulation Bill, 2019, establishes a framework for employing DNA technology for this purpose. On March 28, 2022, the Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill, 2022 was passed by The Lok Sabha. The Identification of Prisoners Act, 1920, is to be repealed by the Bill. Magistrates have the authority to order those measurements or pictures of a person to be taken to help in the probe of an offence. Parliament has enacted the Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill, which supersedes the Identification of Prisoners Act of 1920. Under this legislation, investigative authorities can employ current technology and procedures to investigate crimes, such as collecting confidential and genetic data on persons and maintaining a database for up to 75 years. Such regulation will fail if a sufficient data protection framework is not in place. The law has now been delivered to the President for his signature. It allows for the gathering of data, including a person's biometrics and physical and biological samples. Under this law, law enforcement organizations may employ current technology and tactics to solve crimes, such as the acquisition of sensitive and medical data from persons. The Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill, 2022, proposes allowing police to take "measurements" to identify persons who have been convicted, arrested, or detained. The law broadens the types of data points acquired from individuals, such as palm prints/footprints/finger impressions, iris, retina scans, signatures, handwritings, and other exams under the CrPC. In this paper, you will get a better image of the latest criminal procedure identification bill 2022.
