Abstract :

Forensic science is the most important branch in investigating crimes. The analysis of poisons present in autopsy material is very tedious work. But, mass spectrometry technique makes it possible in few minutes programming to analyze poisons and to help in solving crimes. Mass spectrometry technique helps us in many cases. The analysis of large number of drugs, insecticides, volatiles poisons and many numerous compounds are quite tedious but by use of mass spectrometry it is not only easy to detect poisons but also the molecular structure responsible for the deaths in suspected matters enhances its utility in acceptance of the reports in court of law. There are numerous cases where by use of mass spectrometry, we have solved several important cases. The use of mass spectrometry becomes highly significant in solving crimes. One such case where criminal used anti-psychotropic drug for absconding from police custody at Ajmer will be explained. The role of police person├ó┬?┬?s involvement in execution of this event was questionable and was solved by use of mass spectrometry. In India, the criminals are using various sorts of unknown drugs, insecticides and other compounds to execute criminal activities. Mass spectrometry can solve number of such cases. In fact, it has been widely used in forensic sciences and in many scientific academic institutions. Its significance, uses and future scopes will be elaborated in terms of use in forensic sciences.
