Forensic Medicine – The hand the criminals dread
– Dr. Vasudha Apte
Nowadays, many films and television serials have introduced the concept of Forensic Medicine to the general public. A forensic report of a crime plays a vital role in leading the investigators to the criminal and convicting him before the court. Despite great curiosity about Forensic Medicine, a common man knows very little about the subject. Dr. Vasudha Apte is an expert and a professor in the field of Forensic Medicine. She has helped the court in many complex and challenging cases.
To make the knowledge she imparted to her students or used to prove evidence in the court available in a very simple and lucid language for everyone to understand, Dr. Vasudha Apte authored a serial of articles on Forensic Medicine in the ‘Dainik Pratyaksha’. The essays in the serial were translated into English, and on 26 June 2017, in the presence of Shri. Praveen Dixit , retired Director General of Police, the Marathi and English articles were published in the form of a book. Many books could be available on this subject in English, but it is the first of its kind in Marathi.
