Sehrawat, Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, Panjab University, Chandigarh is to present his FOUR research papers at 21st Triennial Meeting to be held in Toronto, Ontario (Canada) from 21st-25th August, 2017. Forensic science experts of diverse disciplines like forensic anthropology, DNA studies, Criminalistics, fingerprint science, toxicology, legal and judicial sciences etc., from all across the world are expected to attend and present their researches and practical experiences in the discipline at this international conference of very high repute

Dr Sehrawat informed that in his first paper entitled “Comparison of anthropological, chemical and molecular identification of human skeletal remains” he will highlight the results and comparative analysis of various analytical techniques applied to thousands of bones and teeth recovered from an abandoned well present underneath a building structure at Ajnala (Amritsar, India), to facilitate the identification of the victims. 

Dr Sehrawat informed that in his first paper entitled “Comparison of anthropological, chemical and molecular identification of human skeletal remains” he will highlight the results and comparative analysis of various analytical techniques applied to thousands of bones and teeth recovered from an abandoned well present underneath a building structure at Ajnala (Amritsar, India), to facilitate the identification of the victims. These investigations are under progress in collaborations with CCMB, Hyderabad, IIT Roorkee, Dental Institute, Dharwad and Department of Anthropology, Panjab University Chandigarh. Dr. Sehrawat is the principal investigator for establishment of the biological identity of these remains, along with Prof. RK Pathak. He further lamented the non-scientific excavations of the human remains as one of the biggest challenges for their personal identifications.

His second presentations titled “Stable isotope analysis as fingerprints of life‐history of human remains excavated from a well” is specifically focused on elemental and isotopic composition of Ajnala skeletal remains to discuss their local or non-local affiliations to the site and their age and gender estimation.

The third presentation by Dr. Sehrawat will focus on forensic anthropological and clinical significance of metric and non-metric features of human clavicle (collarbone) collected from medico-legal autopsy cases. He claimed that findings of his study will be of great significance not only to anatomists, orthopedic-surgeons and the forensic anthropologists in their professional endeavors, but will also help design more accurate clavicle fixation devices.

He will also present a paper entitled “Anthropological knowledge in forensic death investigations of unknown skeletons: Indian scenario” to focus that anthropologists can contribute significantly in forensic death investigations of the victims of mass disasters and their role should not be ignored.
This conference is organized jointly by various forensic science associations and organizations of different countries of the world.
