Abstract : Cut throat injuries are not uncommon and if not properly interpreted can lead to dubious results. The role of a forensic medicine expert if backed up with the investigation results (of the police officer) can tremendously help the judicial system. A doctor should not be dogmatic and should be open to valuable inputs from police officials while coming to the final and crucial conclusions such as in interpretation of cut throat injuries. We hereby present three case reports. The manners of causation of these cut throat injuries were surprisingly different due to less distinguishing anatomical findings. The role of police officials was very helpful in concluding these case studies. © 2015 South India Medico-Legal Association. All rights reserved.
