Delhi remains one of the most unsafe city for women — a fact reinforced by the latest National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) statistics for the year 2016.

Delhi reported 1,996 rape cases in 2016, up from 1,893 in 2015.

The national Capital, which has consistently reported an increase in the number of sexual crimes against women, has also topped the charts for crimes such as dowry deaths, acid attacks, cruelty by husbands, kidnapping and abduction and stalking, among 19 metropolitan cities of the country from where data was analysed.

According to NCRB data released on Thursday, Delhi contributed one in every three cases of all the crimes against women that happened in metropolitan cities and 4% of all the such cases in the country, with 13,803 cases. This is higher than the 13,260 cases reported in 2014.

Mumbai was a distant second with 5,128 cases registered in 2016. In neighbouring Ghaziabad, 1,031 such cases were reported in 2016.
