The workshop on Computer and Mobile Forensics was held on Friday October 4,

Addressing the gathering, Superintendent of Police B M Laxmi Prasad said, "We are more interconnected to the digital world and lot more dependent on modern things. Whenever a crime is committed, digital footprint is left behind, which is more valuable than the statement of witnesses.

"We should be very careful in using technology and at the same time we should know how to use it to prevent ourselves from committing a crime or being victim of a crime. Many forensic science experts do not know how to recover a file as they depend on software, which cannot always be relied upon. Forensic should not be limited to software alone, it should go much beyond it.
