'75% of people do not report crimes as cops are unfriendly'
NEW DELHI: A 19-year-old allegedly abducted and raped by four men in Bhopal last week is not the only woman to have been turned away by police instead of registering a case immediately.
Around 75 per cent of the population avoids reporting a crime as they feel unhappy with the way cops behave with compnants, especially women and marginalised sections, a study on "Non-registration of crimes: Problems and solutions" has stated.
Police seems to be "overlooking" illiterate and poor people and 33 per cent of their compnts were either registered as non-cognisable offences and 25 per cent as daily diary (DD) entries. They were not apprised of fate of their compnts either.
The study says management of crime statistics by police functionaries is linked to performance appraisals and this was an important reason for non-registration of crimes. "Burking (smothering) of crime is rampant all over," it says, adding that if non-registration of crimes is computed, it may mean that less than 10 per cent crimes are being registered.

Unfortunately police is under State List, and our experience tells us anything that is under state list, is handled very poorly.
