Stature Estimation From Finger Length Of The Indian Population
One of the most significant and practical anthropometric factors that characterizes a person’s physical identity is stature or body height. They are crucial for identifying people in the case of homicides, accidents, or natural disasters. Most often the personal identity of the deceased is a mystery in medico legal cases. It is widely used in the forensic identification. Stature estimation is an essential element of medico-legal investigation when the identification of unknown dismembered remains are involved. In order to assess body size for the purpose of identification, anthropologists frequently utilize and medical scientists have adopted anthropometric techniques. In this study, the stature examination from the finger length is conducted. A total of two hundred samples [hundred males and hundred females] were collected for the examination.
