Kerala doctors get novel forensic kit for examining sexual a
For the first time in the country, the national health mission (NHM) has introduced a forensic evidence (Safe) kit for doctors in Kerala, which will help them in collecting all 13 prescribed samples in sexual assault cases. Such a kit was introduced as the non-availability of forensic evidence usually weakened the prosecution in such cases.

The kit will include samples for the survivor’s dress, breast swabs, pubic hair, vaginal and cervical smears, anal and oral swabs among other things.
