The dupatta and sari are the traditional Indian wear. The loose end of both makes the females prone to sustain grievous injuries while traveling in an electric (E) rickshaw which has become a very popular means of transport on the streets of capital and national capital region. We report here a case of accidental strangulation with a dupatta sustaining airway trauma with a serious consequence leading to significant morbidity.
