girl of twelve years of age. In another case of murder one hundred and five
wounds were inflicted on the body of a Hindu woman. Of these, forty-five
were on the head, face and neck and the remaining on the forearms, wrists,
fingers and shins.
It must be borne in mind that in some cases a murderer kills his victim
by inflicting one or more fatal wounds and then? in order to divert the atten-
tion of the police to possible suicide, he inflicts on the dead body other
wounds which in themselves would have caused the death had they been
produced during life.
