Various physical and trace evidences allow a range of possibilities to carry out forensic investigations. Fingerprints, DNA profiling, Forensic anthropology are commonly employed in personnel identification, mass disasters, inclusion and exclusion. In spite of existing as a methodology in forensic science cheiloscopy has not been successfully utilized. The present study deals with the similarity of lip print patterns among parents and children. The total sample size consisted of 1399 individualsin the age group of 8-60 years belonging to Brahmins, Jats and Scheduled castes from Haryana and Delhi. Furthermore 8 monozygotic twin pairs were also taken in the present work.There persists resemblance among parents and children in their lip print patterns. But no significant association was found in the lip print patterns among twins. This can be an aid for narrowing down investigations, inclusions, exclusions and also a basis for genetic and inheritance implications.
