This page is primarily meant for Forensic Firearm experts confronted with a wide variety of exhibits warranting modified and innovative techniques and exploration of areas considered insoluble.I would like to share my experience with all concerned. Initially, I would like to reproduce some of my research papers on forensic problems of practical utility. I have published/presented sixty research papers and supervised forensic research at doctorate level. A regular update of the page at the initial stage would be by way of reproducing 2-3 published papers on each occasion. In addition, I would regularly address various aspects of forensic case oriented problems highlighting remedial measures in dealing with complicated, ambiguous and unusual exhibits with special reference to improvised, imitation and locally made firearms(commonly used in developing countries).
