In order to provide better safety and security to women across the country, the central government had implemented a project Nirbhaya Fund Scheme in 2013. Mizoram FSL received the Nirbhaya Fund amounting to Rupees 4.19 crore for Establishment of Cyber Forensic Division, strengthening of the existing DNA lab and related facilities. Even though procurement of instruments and recruitment of expert to run the new division had been slightly delayed due to Covid-19 pandemic, a post of Junior Scientific Officer (JSO) was filled in December, 2021 and major equipment have been completely installed in the first week of February.
The new Cyber Forensic Division is now all set to play its role as the eighth division in Mizoram FSL and take part in the justice delivery system.
