AGARTALA, Feb 11 (TIWN): Amidst long claims of Tripura DGP K Nagraj that crime on women drastically decreasing, rapes and murder have become everyday issues in state. In yet another tragic incident, Amarpur Police recovered a body of a woman Anjali Rani Das from a river in Thakcheraa Gram Panchayat under Amarpur Sub Division. Police is suspecting it to be a murder case, and many injuries with sharp weapons has been found on her body. The body was recovered from decease’s own house. Getting alarmed about the incident the Amarpur Police rushed to the spot along with dog squad. “We are suspecting it to be a murder case, as several injuries of sharp weapons has been found on the body”, said Amarpur police. Police is further investigating the case. Whereas Tripura has become the den for rapists and there would be hardly any day when women are not victimized here either its rape or any other issue DGM K Nagraj is now a days busy in showing eye-dazzling data on 'decreasing' Crime-rate in Tripura.

According to Nagraj press release in December 2016 it says, “……….During this year, the total overall registration of crimes against women has come down to 977 cases as against 1221 in 2015 and 1531 cases in 2014.  Cases related to torture upon women by husband or relatives of husband, has come down to 410 cases as against 466 in 2015 and 665 cases in 2014. 

Dowry death cases have come down to 15 as against 27 in 2015 and 35 cases in 2014. Rape cases have come down to 189 during this year as against 197 in 2015 and 225 in 2014. Molestation cases have come down to 202 as against 323 in 2015 and 437 in 2014. Elopement cases have come down to 10 as against 110 in 2015 but marginally increased as compared to 2015 (93 cases). Under remaining heads, it has come down to 55 cases during this year as against 98 in 2015 and 76 in 2014”.

But as per the Govt data released recently, it was said that 25 % cases are unregistered (i.e. police do not take the cases), and 25 % cases only can end with proper justice. That means around 75 % of the registered and unregistered cases are dumped under files without proper investigation.

Altogether 196 rape cases were registered here in Tripura till January 2015 with the record in the Financial Year (FY) 2014-15 shows a hefty climb to the crimes against women. Tripura witnessed 840 cases relating to crime against women till January, 2015, out of which 196 are rape cases.A total of 107 rape cases were lodged during the financial year 2013-14, whereas during the previous FY the figures rested at 108. However but the figures jumped to 196 during the 2014-15 FY.

According to the Crimes in India 2013 report published by National Crimes Record Bureau (NCRB), Tripura had registered 1628 cases of various crimes against women during 2013.

Of these cases of cruelty by husbands and other relatives were the highest at 827, followed by 233 cases of rape, 124 cases of kidnapping and abduction and 29 cases of dowry-related deaths.

However, in 2012-13, the dowry deaths hiked at 796 and the very next fiscal year (2013-14), the figure touched 880.

Altogether 840 cases related to crime against women were registered by January 2015 across the state. Among the total women violence cases, 544 cases in connection to dowry death were lodged at different police stations.

Cases of crimes against women in Tripura are rising. In 2011, 1,503 such cases were registered while the number went up to 1,650 in 2012 and 1,706 in 2013. Beside from April 2013 to March 2014, the number of case relating to the women registered at 848 taking the number high till today.

In this condition, the rape incidents increasing day by day but police is relaxed to take these issues seriously resulting increasing crimeagainst women. 

Despite of several tall claims by the authority that the crime against women has decreased here in Tripura, day by day the crime against women are increasing. Overall scenario of crime against women in Tripura is increasing at an alarming rate. Tension prevails with this tragic incident over the locals.

Of late crime against women are increasing at an alarming rate which includes torture, rape, murder and various other illicit act on the women by miscreants and sometimes by the family members themselves.

However, despite of increase in crime against woman at an alarming, Police administration and authorties are playing role of mute spectator.
