CHENNAI, SEPTEMBER 12 Missing of a dear one with no clues on their fate and other issues brings anguish to families, but when the Police step in with State Crime Records Bureau and with the help of technology 89 families have, at least know that their missing members are no longer alive and that they have to move on with life. The State Police’s State Crime Records Bureau, the nodal agency, takes pains to train its police personnel on the latest software and to match data. It takes interest in matching the details of the missing persons and unclaimed bodies recovered from various parts of the State. The effort started last November and the Police found that details of 89 missing persons matched with the unclaimed bodies recovered from various parts of the State. A senior police officer said, “Even though it is a sad news, but still it is better to know what happened to the missing persons, than continue worrying about them and help the families move on with life”. To find the matching details with unclaimed bodies and keeping track of missing persons cases are the work of the local police stations, but the State Crime Records Bureau staff realized that the police stations are unable to take in more load and they could not concentrate on the job. This idea has brought relief to 89 families so far, says the senior police officer. With nearly 3,739 unidentified bodies being reported in the State, as per NCRB data for 2015, Tamil Nadu came only second to Maharastra. This reveals the enormity of the problem and the number of families that may be left with little clue about their missing dear ones, the officer added. An Inspector who is part of the team said, “Currently, we are focusing on matching the cases that were reported in 2015 and years prior to it”. In most of the cases it was found that the missing persons had died in accidents or some other reasons just days after they disappeared. The information, though brings grief to the families, enables them to at least perform the last rites to the departed souls or in some cases bring an end to property disputes. The official said it explain how they matched the missing persons details and unidentified bodies. The information was based on mainly details of birth marks and clothes worn by the persons at the time of their disappearance which were uploaded by police stations. Photos of the bodies and missing persons are also cross matched. The Inspector said, “It is a challenging task. Most families do not furnish proper details, including birth marks, tattoo or even clothes, which prolongs detection of the cases. In some instances, though the photos matched, the family members denied that the person concerned was their missing one. In cases like these we do not force them to accept,” the officer added.]]>
