The police always have a tough time to nab criminals and most importantly to put them behind the bars after proving them guilty under the law. A recent study conducted by Dr Ailsa Millen from Washington DC, USA has revealed a new way to confirm the conviction of a suspect. It would be apt to define it as ‘down south we call it as Raghavan instincts’ assuming the popularity of Tamil Film ‘Vettaiyadu Vilayadu’.

As per ANI, Dr Ailsa Millen revealed the study conducted by researchers based on which the eye movement of a victim or a suspect will be a major factor to identify the real criminals. Dr Ailsa and team conducted a simple experiment by showing familiar photographs to different people in order to track their eye movements. Though some of the people indicated signs of being guilty some intentionally tried to shy away.

Therefore people possessing such mysterious eye movements was identified and later it was revealed that they were either lying or hiding some information. This process of identifying the criminals through eye movements is called, Concealed Information Test (CIT).  The research was published in the Journal: Cognitive Research, Principals and Implications.

Reportedly the Concealed Information Test (CIT) is being followed in Japan to identify culprits. Anybody who could recollect the dialogues of the Tamil film “Vettaiyaadu Villayadu” can relate the above study to “ Kanna paatha odane oruthan criminal ah illayanu solla theriyadhavan ennaya police karan” ( Wouldn’t a police officer should possess gut instincts to identify criminals by just looking “at their eyes”? )
