Though violence and crime is prevalent in every country and society, most of them either go undetected or unreported. Forensic Medicine plays an important role in helping to prevent, early detection, providing expert medico-legal and scientific reports at earliest, which will result in quick trial and instant administration of justice to victims.

As the crime rate is increasing in India, there is an urgent need to give importance to Forensic Nursing too, and it should be included in the nursing curriculum, or special training for trained nurses. So that nurses would be instrumental in early identification and creating a more empowering reporting environment among vulnerable women in the community.
