Human trafficking has been a dark truth of civilization all over the world since ages. The dwindling sex ratios in haryana has made it a hub for trafficking of poor women for marriage from other states. These women are locally called “molki” or “paro”and are an easy prey to atrocities and expoitation. However, in some cases these women are accepted into the family and live a life of respect and fulfillment but investigating authorities always presume malfeasance in such cases. One such case where a natural death was considered unnatural and unscientific presumptions were made regarding age and sexual assault by the police implicating the family of such crimes. A meticulous autopsy revealed that neither the female was underaged nor the death was unnatural.

Keywords: Human trafficking, Investigating authority, Autopsy.
