The cases of molestation went up by a whopping 68%, while rape cases have gone up by 38.34% in the year. The cases of rape of minors also increased by 22%.

Police officials said that the increase in crime rate is mainly due to increasing awareness among people to register cases with the police.

There are certain issues which still need to be worked on and we are focusing on those.”
