Deaths due to burns though rare in the western context are frequently encountered in the Indian scenario. A study was conducted at Government General Hospital Gulbarga over a period of five years to find out the incidence and influence of different factors leading to fatal burns injury. Out of the total 525 cases studied maximum were found in the age group of 20-30 years. 115 patients were brought dead and the remaining 410 succumbed later after the admission. Among these 161 cases survived for five days after the injury. Most common cause of death in our study was septicemia which accounted for 343 cases. Maximum number of deaths i.e., 450 was accidental in nature and least common was homicidal deaths accounting for only 23 cases. The paper also describes the comparison between our study and studies conducted by different authors across the country to find out the similarities and dissimilarities in various factors affecting the burns victims.

Though there are several parameters which help in identifying a person, stature of an individual is one of the important parameter, as it is an inherent characteristic. There is an established relationship between stature and dimensions of various parts of the body allowing the investigators to estimate the stature from available data. In the present study right footprint length, left footprint length and heights of 200 students(100 males and 100 females) studying in M.R. Medical College belonging to Gulbarga region are recorded for stature estimation. Significant and positive correlation coefficient has been shown to exist between stature and measurements of foot prints. The present study shows a significant correlation of stature with right and left foot print length (P<0.01). The results show that males are taller and their mean foot length is larger than that of females. There is no statistically significant difference in right and left footprint length in both the sexes (P>0.05). Either right or left footprint length may be used to predict the stature by regression formula. Regression equations are derived separately for individual foot length in both the sexes. Source

Estimation of stature from various measurements of the body is vital to medicolegal investigations. Correlation coefficients and formulae derived for regression equation to estimate the approximate height are age and race specific.It is a cross-sectional study carried out to estimate stature from head length on 100 students of M.R.Medical College, Gulbarga aged above 21years hailing from Hyderabad Karnataka region and also to evaluate the correlation of body height and head length. A Positive and statistically significant correlation between total height and other cranial parameters like head height, head length & head breadth was observed in both the sexes (P< 0.01). The correlation coefficient between head length and stature is 0.664 in males, 0.661 in females, The results indicate that the cranial dimension like head length provides an important means in estimating the stature of an unknown individual. Regression equations derived - Ht = (a) + (b) x Head length can be used to estimate the stature, in this Hyderabad Karnataka region. Source

Delinquent children belong to that category of exceptional children who exhibit considerable deviation in terms of their social adjustment and are consequently also labelled as socially deviant or socially handicapped. They are found to possess criminal tendencies and usually indulge in antisocial behaviour. In this sense, they are very much like criminals and antisocial elements. In legal terminology, however they are referred to as delinquents and not as criminals. Source
