Hi Amol Ch,

Salesforce does not provide any scanning services. You need integrate third party software which will scan the finger print, will create picture and insert that picture as attachment to Contact record.

There are other ways can be implemented.

After getting scanned, the images will be saved some file storage.

From Salesforce, those files can be read though the batch process and inserts the attachment.

For more information refer to he below links,
