An Epidemiological Study of Homicidal Cases Autopsied in the Mortuary of the Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, North Bengal, Darjeeling
Keywords:Forensic medicine, homicidal cases, epidemiology.
Homicide is regarded as a notorious crime against the society that causes intentional killing, aggravated
assaults resulting in death. This brings a massive burden on national economies, law enforcement and lost
productivity. The present study highlighted the epidemiological profile of homicidal deaths which accounted
(3.9%) of all unnatural deaths autopsied. Overall trend shows high male predominance with low economic
background where illiteracy, poverty and other social circumstances play a considerable role. Homicidal
records have their importance in interpretation of socio-economic implications and overall administrative
attributes on executing law and order in respect to time, place and conditions.
