London Private Investigators Offer DNA Testing In Light Of Telegraph Article by Sarah Knapton Dated 11th December 2013: Identical twins need never be tried for same crime after DNA breakthrough

Many cases that our private investigators handle involve problems which can be solved by taking a simple DNA test

According to the article in The Telegraph dated 11th December 2013 by Sarah Knapton, in August 2013, detectives arrested Aftab and Mohammed Asghar, both 22, after recovering DNA from the jumper of 17–year–old girl who was allegedly attacked by at least three men in a Reading park at night. Seeing as identical twins share the same DNA, it was impossible to determine which one of them was involved in the crime, or if they both took part. Until now geneticists have not been able to prove that identical twins - also known as monozygotic twins - are not genetically identical, just based on DNA evidence. But in a breakthrough a forensic laboratory found the subtle difference at a genetic level which could prove vital in solving crimes and paternity cases involving identical twins. All charges were dropped against Atfab Asghar but Mohammed Atfab was charged with rape at Reading Crown Court 3rd December 2013 case number T20137086

Dr Bruno Poddevin, Senior Vice-President of the Genomic Services division and head of the Forensics laboratory at Eurofins, said: "Eurofins scientists are the first to proof that monozygotic twins are genetically not absolutely identical. As the only provider worldwide Eurofins can now offer DNA forensic and paternity testing to discriminate identical twins to authorities, courts and individuals.” This means that identical twins need never again be tried for the same crime after scientists found first proof that they are not genetically the same.

In light of these events, London Private Investigators ( offers its clients the services of DNA testing, among its many other services.
