In a corrigendum published in the report, NCRB has reduced total crimes registered under SLL in UP by 99 per cent, in Chhattisgarh by 88 per cent and in Uttarakhand by 95 per cent.

The ugly side of City Beautiful was mirrored in the National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB) report for 2016, which was released on Thursday. The total number of cases in 2015 was 6,276 and in 2016, the number is 6,568 - an increase by 4.7%. The state also ranked second in economic offences and cyber crime.

Delhi accounted for highest crime rate 974.9 under IPC crimes followed by Kerala 727.6 and Madhya Pradesh 337.9 against national average of 233.6.

Mumbai ranked second among metropolitan cities in cases of assault on women with intent to outrage her modesty.

Murder decreased by 5.2 per cent (from 32,127 cases in 2015 to 30,450 in 2016), rioting 5 per cent (from 65,255 cases in 2015 to 61,974 in 2016 ), dacoity 4.5 per cent (from 3,972 cases in 2015 to 3,795 in 2016) and robbery 11.8 per cent (from 36,188 cases in 2015 to 31,906 in 2016).
