Maharashtra also stood third in the total number of cases (2,61,714) registered under the Indian Penal Code, amounting to 8.8% of the crimes in the country.

For the last 10 years now, total number of crimes in India hovered between 50 lakh and 70 lakh, and the crime rate ranged from 455 to 580 - crime rate is the number of crimes registered per 100,000 people. Mumbai also ranked second in cases of kidnapping and abduction of children, with 5,457 cases in Delhi and 1,864 cases in Mumbai. Bengaluru topped the list for cyber crimes for the last two years.

The data says 737 cases of crime against women are under police investigation in the UT, of which 323 cases were pending from previous years.

Cyber crime has witnessed a rapid increase as the State registered 616 cases in 2016 when compared to 536 cases in 2015 and the NCRB report has put the AP in the sixth place in the list of States with highest cyber-crime cases.

Another shocking fact from the report is that Chandigarh is third position when it comes to the crime against children, although the absolute number of cases fell from 271 in 2015 to 222 in 2016. Crimes against children are a cause of concern.

Kidnapping and abduction of children accounted for 52.3% of the cases followed by cases reported under POCSO (Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences Act) - 34.4%.
