Kerala is picking up steam : “….2,364 cases have been reported in the state till May 2012 in connection with cruelty by husband or relatives…”

“….As per the statistics, 2,364 cases have been reported in the state till May 2012 in connection with cruelty by husband or relatives, while it was 5,377 cases in 2011, 4,797 in 2010, 4,007 in 2009 and 4,138 in 2008…..”

Somehow this is not considered misuse …..

KOCHI: Well, it seems like Kerala is in a race to beat its own crime rate figures of 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008. In the first five months of year 2012, the state has already witnessed 151 murders that included the brutal killing of RMP leaderT P Chandrasekharan at Onchiyam.While the murder figures (up to May 2012) were 151, the number of attempt to commit murder, rape and dowry deaths were 236, 432 and 17 respectively.

A fair reading of the stats released by the Kerala Police shows that there is a drastic increase in number of dowry deaths (17 cases so up to May) in 2012 compared to total 15 cases in 2011.

“We register dowry death cases after conducting preliminary investigation on the complaints given by the relatives of the victim. Though most of the incidents prima facie look likes suicide, probe has brought out the real cause of deaths,” said a senior police officer.

As per the statistics, 2,364 cases have been reported in the state till May 2012 in connection with cruelty by husband or relatives, while it was 5,377 cases in 2011, 4,797 in 2010, 4,007 in 2009 and 4,138 in 2008.

“We register all the complaints forwarded by victims after conducting a preliminary probe. Even in the incidents of molestation or sexual harassment, we entertain the victims to lodge a formal complaint,” the officer said and added that as years go by, the crime rate is likely to increase and not decline. “Women have become bolder enough to come forward and lodge complaints,” he said.

According to the data, of the 124 kidnapping and abduction cases reported in the state up to May 2012, 88 cases were kidnapping of women.

The statistics relelased by Kerala Police shows that there is a drastic increase in number of dowry deaths.
