Sumita Shukla, Raveena Singh, Sagun Shukla

Background: Sex determination in identification of human remains is one of the most important components in forensic identification and it is a major task in medico legal investigation. Objective: To study the morphometric analysis of index finger and ring finger and comparing with height weight and BMI. Material and Methods: Present study was carried out on 200 individual of both sexes. Length of index and ring fingers and the ratios between them were estimated. Results: Mean age of male subject were 18.94 and in female 19.34. The mean length of Index finger of male was 7.049 cm and female was 6.521 cm. The mean length of ring finger was in male and female following 7.20 & 6.722 cm. The mean height of male was 170.7 and in female 158.5, weight of male 65.36 and female 48.41 where as both male and female BMI was 22.8 & 19.80. Conclusion: The index finger and ring finger length ratio in males is greater than in females which is insignificant. In males height was greater than the height of females. Weight and BMI of the males was greater than that of the females. In males out of all the anthropometric parameters, only BMI was significantly correlated with index finger length. In males no anthropometric parameters- was significantly correlated with ring finger length. In females neither index nor ring finger showed any significant co- relation with all the three anthropometric parameters i.e
