Abstract

The complexity of the problem of “Suspicious deaths among women within Seven years of their married life” is so intense and deep as it involves social anthropology, sociology, civilization, marriage systems and customs. Despite of the appreciable revolutionary amendments by lawmakers for the safety and well-being of women, the atrocities against women is on rise as ever. Though the educational and occupational opportunities are providing women with new roles outside the home, their social position in the family remains unchanged. In our present retrospective research, an attempt has been made to study the changing trends of the medico-legal aspects of the incidence of the suspicious deaths in the women within seven years of their married life in and around Kakinada during 2012 to 2016 in relation to the statistics during 1996 to 2000 as per the “Medico-legal study of suspicious deaths among married women under seven years of their married life in and around Kakinada during 1996 to 2000” by Dr. (Late) P.Sarath Kumar Babu et al., (Rtd). Professor, Department of Forensic Medicine, Rangaraya Medical College, Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh.
