Abstract : Finger prints are considered as the best tool of identification. Finger print evidence is by far the most effective and reliable evidence in the court of law. Two major aspects which prove the efficiency of finger prints are, the ridges formed during the foetal period do not change their course of alignment throughout the life of an individual until the skin is decomposed andthe other one is two finger prints of either a same individual or two different individuals are never alike, they differ in their patterns and ridge characteristics. Due to its effectiveness or we can say its potential fingerprints are considered as conclusive evidence in the court of law. Present study is an attempt to analyze and correlate fingerprint patterns with gender and population differences. We have carried a study with 300 individuals among which 150 were Nepali and 150 were Non-Nepali (mostly Indian origin) belonging to different age groups. This study was carried out in Nepal and India. All the 10 fingerprint patterns were divided into Loops, Whorls and Arches. Results show thatLoops are most commonly found fingerprint patterns and Arches are least common. There are significant group variations in fingerprint patteren(rt.hand)between nepali and non Nepali the differences is slightly significant . Group variation for left hand prints between Nepali & Non-Nepali are also highly significant. Group variation for both hands between Nepali & Non-Nepali are also highly significant.
