Human identification is a mainstay of civilization and identification of unknown individuals has always been of paramount importance to society. Establishing individuality is an imperative aspect in any investigating procedure. The use of biological evidence for identification of an individual is a relatively recent development, but it is expensive and time consuming. The Forensic importance of dental tissue has been well recognized because of the fact that tooth is hardest of all human tissues and they can be preserved intact for a long period of time after death. Blood group has been one of the corner stones for identification of biological materials in Forensic investigations, and ABO blood grouping is widely used in Forensic laboratories. In this study an attempt is made to determine ABO blood group from the dental pulp and the dentin extracted from dead body by absorption –elution method.
