  • City tops in crimes against sr citizens, 2nd against women

It accounted for 40% of rape cases committed in the metros. Delhi topped the list with 7,392 cases, followed by Mumbai and then Bengaluru.

According to the report, "Crime Against Women" have reported an increase of 2.9 per cent in 2016 over 2015. "Online frauds, phishing, spam and identity thefts are major types of cyber crimes and the city needs to get ready for it".

However, the cases registered under special and local laws in the state have decreased from 16,496 in 2015 to 11,282 in 2016.

It may be noted that of these three states, the BJP was not in power in Uttar Pradesh during the time when these cases were reported as the state had a Samajwadi Party government, led by Akhilesh Yadav in 2016. 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.

"The state Government has resolved to deal sternly with such cases and to protect women", Sarang said. Mumbai also had the second highest number of rape cases, at 712 cases, after Delhi that had 1,996 cases.

Rape cases shot up in 2016 by 12.4% as opposed to a 5.6% decline between 2014 and 2015, which experts said was on account of under-reporting. Karnataka is on the third rank with 1,101 cases of cyber crimes of the same period. It was followed by Madhya Pradesh (8.9 per cent), Maharashtra (8.8 per cent) and Kerala (8.7 per cent).

The crimes and atrocities against the SC/ST community have become a rallying election point in poll-bound Gujarat where people from these oppressed communities, especially the Dalits, have been complaining of unprovoked aggression against them.

Uttar Pradesh also saw the highest number of crimes against women with 14.5 percent (49,262 cases) of the total cases. "Maharashtra is a vast state where the pace of digitisation is faster than other states".

In the latest record titled "Crime in India 2016", tabled on Thursday by the statistics and record body that was released by Union home Minister Rajnath Singh, also showed an alarming rise of 6% in the cases of kidnapping from the year 2015 (82,999) to 2016 (88,008).

The total 1879 and 2195 cyber crime cases, registered under sections of IT Act and IPC Act, were registered in 2014 and 2015 respectively in Maharashtra.
