Abstract

ABSTRACT- Forensic Psychology is an unique combination of Law, Forensic science and Psychology. Main function of forensic psychologist is to assess the individual’s mental status. Forensic psychologists have various roles in court system, in law enforcement agencies, correctional institution and also in medical treatment. Forensic psychology involves various techniques such as narco-analysis test, lie detector test and brain mapping. Though these technologies are a boon to criminal investigation system, reliability of evidence derived from these techniques are questioned. Indian judiciary has been oscillating back and forth on admissibility of evidences derived by forensic psychologist. India lacks in expertise in this field. Training should be given to crime investigation agencies and judiciary should also provide more weightage to forensic psychology while adjudication a case.
