The National capital is the most unsafe among 19 major cities in the country, accounting for almost 40 per cent of rapes reported, 33 per cent of crimes against women and the highest crime rate in 2016, according to data released by the NCRB on Thursday.

However, when overall crime, including those under SLL, was taken into account, UP shot towards the top of the list. The crimes against women included 2,183 cases of assault with intent to outrage modesty, 1,142 cases of kidnapping and abduction and 712 cases of rape.

Delhi registered 40 per cent (1,996) of the total number of rape cases in the 19 cities and almost 29 per cent cases each of cruelty meted out by husband and his relatives and dowry deaths across the country. Around 4,882 cases of rape were reported in the state in 2016, followed by UP with 4,816 cases and Maharashtra with 4,189 cases.

Cases reported under "juveniles in conflict with law" have shown a mixed trend for the past three years with the decline of 13.1% in 2015 (33,433) over 2014 (38,455) followed by an increase of 7.2% in 2016 (35,849) over 2015.

The data released by the NCRB only reflects the number of cases that have been registered with the police.

Total 84,746 cases of assault on women with intent to outrage modesty were reported in 2016.

Further, the NCRB report has given ninth rank to AP based on the crime rate calculated as per population.


The national capital also recorded the highest crime rate of 182.1 compared to the national average of 77.2 and reported the highest number of murders - 479 out of 2,194 cases (21.8 percent), followed by Bengaluru 10.4 percent (229 cases) and Patna 8.9 percent (195 cases). Delhi also reported the most number of cases of economic offences at 5,942 cases or 19.3 per cent followed by Jaipur at 4,742 cases and Mumbai at 4,191 cases. For violent cases like murder and attempt to murder, the city was ranked second by the NCRB, just after Delhi.

Abduction cases declined from 1,402 in 2015 to 1,309 in 2016. For other offences, such as traffic challans, NCRB will provide separate data from next year.

Delhi UT with 1,14,751 notes (worth Rs. 5,65,21,460) has reported maximum number of seizure of Fake Indian Currency Notes (FICN) followed by Gujarat 39,725 notes (worth Rs. 2,37,24,050) and West Bengal 32,869 notes (worth Rs. 2,32,95,800) during 2016.

Maharashtra reported the highest number of missing persons (94,919 - 17.2%) out of the total of 5,49,008 persons (2,34,334 males and 3,14,674 females).

Mumbai also held third position in terms of total IPC crimes in 19 metropolitan cities.
