Delhi records highest cases of crimes against women in 2016

Delhi reported the maximum number of auto thefts previous year with more than four vehicles stolen on an average every hour in the national capital, according to data released by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) today.

With 2.3 per cent share amongst the Metros, Hyderabad ranks 13th in the list, while Delhi tops the list with 25.5 per cent share of crimes and Kanpur lasts with 1.1 per cent. Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh reported the highest incidence of rape with 4,882 cases (12.5%) and 4,816 (12.4%), respectively, followed by Maharashtra with 4,189 cases (10.7%) during 2016.

Contrary to the theory that caste lines get blurred in cities, the National Crime Records Bureau's (NCRB) latest data on atrocities against Dalits shows that urban areas tend to reflect the pattern in their surrounding rural belts.

Cases under "Crime against Women" have reported a marginal decrease in the year 2016 (3,38,954) compared to the year 2014 (3,39,457), however for 2016, it is a marginal increase compared to 2015 (3,29,243). West Bengal with 9.6% (32,513 cases) was at second position. Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led Madhya Pradesh was at the top spot on the list with 12.5% of all cases, which is 4,882 cases. Out of the total cases reported, 154 cases were lodged in the national capital, followed by 38 in Maharashtra, 33 in Puducherry and 22 in Goa. Comparatively, Karnataka reported 1,869 such incidents, accounting for just 4.3 per cent of all such crimes in the country.

Uttar Pradesh missed the dubious distinction of recording most rape cases in the country by a whisker. Delhi topped the list with 7,392 cases, followed by Mumbai and then Bengaluru.

Both Patna and Jaipur recorded a higher percentage share than their respective states. Out of the total 8,08,637 cases registered under the IPC, state laws and other laws, 18,295 cases were registered in Hyderabad. The overall figure of missing persons (adults and minors) stood at 5,49, 008 for 2016.
