Bangla gains highest success in recovering/ tracing missing children
After a delay of two years, the Crime in India report for 2017 has been released by the National Crime Records Bureau.
As per the report, Bangla registered the highest success in terms of children being recovered or traced in 2017. This jump in the index is largely due to the State’s improved performance in preventing human trafficking.
In 2017, 11,849 missing children below 18 years were recovered or traced in Bangla, which accounted for 16.82 per cent of all children traced (70,440) throughout the country.
In terms of crimes against women, Kolkata recorded 15 victims of rape and 53 victims of stalking in 2017, against 1,170 victims of rape and 472 victims of stalking in Delhi. As per the report, 3,59,849 cases of crimes against women were reported in the country.
Kolkata has also emerged as the safest among 19 cities (population of 20 lakh or more), including the metros, in terms of crimes committed per lakh population.
