PATNA/LUCKNOW: The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) in its latest report data released shows that Bihar, often at the receiving end for bad law and order, recorded 13,891 cases of crime against women as per the NCRB 2015 data released on Tuesday against 15,383 in 2014. The overall number of crimes against women at the national level has also declined from 3.3 lakh in 2014 to 3.2 lakh in 2015. Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Maharashtra recorded the highest number of crimes against women according to the NCRB data. Statistics show women in the age group of 18-30 years are the most vulnerable to rape. Rape cases have also came down over the previous year — from 1,127 in 2014 to 1,041 in 2015. Figures reveal that 954 cases of rape in Bihar were committed by offenders known to the victims. Jharkhand recorded 1,053 cases, Madhya Pradesh 4,391, Maharashtra 4,144 and Haryana 1,070, compared to Bihar. Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar had countered claims of poor law and order by describing it to be a “perception created by the Opposition”. The state recorded 16,871 cognizable offences against 6,76,086 recorded at the national level, i.e. 2.5% of the total number. Bihar also reported 7,128 cases of kidnapping and 3,178 incidents of murder in 2015. Of the BJP-ruled states, MP and Maharashtra recorded 6,778 and 8,255 cases of kidnapping respectively, while 2,108 cases of kidnapping were reported from Gujarat.
