Crimes in India in 2016 increased 2.6 per cent: NCRB

According to the report for 2016, covering 19 cities with a population above two million, Delhi reported 33 per cent (13,803 cases of 41,761) of crimes against women previous year. Karnataka accounts for 453, or 1.3%, of the cases.

During 2016, IPC crimes reported charge sheeting rate of 72.9% and conviction rate of 46.8% in the country.

However, the number of cases has come down by 7% from 6,396 in 2015 to 5,942 in 2016. This number is a 12 per cent decrease from 2015 when a total of 66,676 cases were registered.

Delhi police officials claim that the main reason for the national capital recording the highest number of cases is that as compared to other cities of different states, there is "free and fair" registration of cases, particularly of heinous crimes. Inhabited by nearly two crore people, Delhi has often remained in focus for its crime rate and incidents of crimes against women, particularly the December 16, 2012 gang rape of Nirbhaya. The report shows a slight increase in political murders - 113 in 2016 whereas, it was 96 in 2015. Of these, 49,338 are women and 45,581 are men, the data shows.
