Lucknow: The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) has come out with some facts and figures, in its latest report, which the Uttar Pradesh government may contest. For, contrary to the claim of the state government that the crime situation in the state is not worse than Delhi or some other states, the report claims that at least in two fields of murder and kidnapping the state has no peer.

The state, according to the report, accounted for nearly 15 per cent of the total murders and kidnapping cases in the country.

It can, however, derive some pleasure from the fact that ,as far as rape is concerned, it has not got the dubious distinction. Madhya Pradesh tops the list in this connection.

The agency, however, has expressed its displeasure over four incidents of rape in police lock-ups. Four such incidents were recorded in the state last year. What is more shocking is that the state police was linked to some of the custodial rape cases.

Rape cases in the state in 2015:

  • On an average, eight women were physically assaulted in U P every day last year. A total of 459 such cases were recorded by the agency in that year.
  • In other crimes against women too, the state has not done anything appreciable. For instance, it accounted for 61 of total 249 acid attack cases in the country. Thirty per cent of dowry deaths had taken place in the state.
