This is a retrospective study that took place in a Tertiary Care Centre’s Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology from June 2016 to June 2017. This research includes all cases having a rumoured history of hangings. The current study’s goals and objectives are to assess the age and gender distribution of hanging cases, the type of ligature material used, and the reason for suicide. In this study, the most usually involved age group was 31 to 40 years, followed by 51-60 years and 41-50 years, with males outnumbering females. In 75% of the cases, the victim was completely hanged. The most frequent material for hanging is nylon rope. In 25% of the instances, salivary stains can be found around the angle of the mouth. The ligature mark is seen above the level of thyroid cartilage in 87.5 percent of instances. The most common cause of hanging fatalities is financial difficulties (75.83 percent ). Hanging is more common among married people than among unmarried persons.
