Then it becomes difficult for him to make a comment on manner of injury- whether suicidal / homicidal / accidental. Situation becomes worse when wound is handled by surgeon before examination by a forensic expert. Here, a case of injury over neck is discussed. A dead body of male aged 65 year was brought for autopsy with alleged history of injury over neck by Bull-horn. Patient was treated and was hospitalized for 31 days in private hospital, developed septicemia and died.
