On August 12, the Union home minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated the first National Conference of investigating agencies. The two-day conference was organised by the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D) in coordination with National Investigation Agency (NIA).

Addressing the guests, Singh said that investigation agencies are facing many challenges in the investigation of traditional and modern crimes. He said that this conference is an opportunity to discuss these challenges and ways to overcome them. He expressed hope that this conference will discuss ways to improve quality of investigation especially for economic and organised crimes and related legal issues.

He emphasised on the need for bringing improvement in scientific investigation, and said that the central government was spending Rs 279.90 crore under 12th Five Year Plan for upgradation and modernisation of existing three Central Forensic Science Laboratories (CFSL) located at Chandigarh, Hyderabad and Kolkata and opening of three new CFSL at Pune, Bhopal and Guwahati. In these labs Digital Forensic Division (Forensic Electronics), Forensics D.N.A Division, Forensic Engineering Division, Forensic Intelligence Division, Forensic Psychology Division, Narcotics Drug Division and Government Examiner of Question Documents (GEQD) will be created.
