The number of molestation cases was raised from 4106 to 7972. Moreover, 7057 cases of women abduction were reported in 2012-13 while the number rose to 8964 in 2014-15.

Inadequate police force in UP:
On an average, merely 81 policemen serve one lakh civilians in the state. Furthermore, there are only 7404 policewomen working in UP.
