The Gandhi theme keeps returning during conversations with Dr Gandhi P C Kaza. He was born on January 30, 1948, the day Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated; a student of Gandhian philosophy, he chose the anniversary of the Dandi March day to push the idea of his business in March 2007; and an image of Mahatma Gandhi peering into a microscope figures prominently in posters and brochures for his venture.
His business itself, he says, is the search for truth through India's first private forensic science laboratory, Truth Labs.
A forensic scientist by training with a masters degree in arts from the reputed John Jay College of Human Justice in New York and an early, path-breaking director of the Andhra Pradesh Forensic Science Laboratory, Kaza started Truth Labs in Hyderabad in 2007 with a corpus of Rs 2 crore.
He raised the money after selling a three-decade-old property in Hyderabad's upmarket Banjara Hills area for Rs 4 crore, and the Truth Labs venture has now spread to Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai and has been involved in as many as 5,000 public and private cases, including in some recent prominent ones.
Evidence from the Delhi High Court blasts case to the Zee-Jindal alleged extortion case has come to Truth Labs for analysis. In Karnataka, the government has even issued an order allowing police to seek the services of Truth Labs for emergency cases.
Through a combination of in-house facilities and collaborations with the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, the University of Hyderabad, the National Law School of India University, and the Bureau of Police Research and Development, Truth Labs has established a services system that covers the gamut of forensic sciences — from DNA analysis to cyber forensics, from video and audio authentication to document analysis.
