How do these perpetrators of crime in most cases manage to silence or intimidate victims and their families is a question that remains unanswered; as does the question why police fail protect victims and their family members.
According to the NCRB’s “Crime in India” 2019 report, Uttar Pradesh reported the highest number of crimes against women (59,853), accounting for 14.7 percent of such cases across the country. UP also had the highest number of crimes against girl children under the POCSO Act and ranked second in terms of rapes committed.
The Yogi Government however claims that crime has come down in UP in the last four years. Government says that there is almost 66 % decline in cases of loot, 19 % in murders and more than 45 % in the incidents of rape and molestation.
It says in 1535 police thanas, women help desks have been set up. Besides, 135 criminals have been killed in the last four years in 7791 encounters.
Take your pick on what you want to believe in Yogi’s Ram Rajya.
