Congress condemns Haryana govt for rising crime rate in state | Chandigarh News


CHANDIGARH: Senior Congress leader and its national general secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala said on Friday that the wrong policies of BJP govt have converted the peaceful state of Haryana into a crime hub, where three murders, four rapes and eight kidnappings are occurring each day.
In cognizable crime rate under Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Special and Local Laws (SLL), the Haryana state stood fourth in the whole country, which should be a matter of shame for the government.
Citing the latest National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data, Surjewala has questioned the Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala and Home Minister Anil Vij for the big delay in filing chargesheets against the IPC and SLL offenders. Why has Haryana come last among the bigger states (except the states of Manipur, Meghalaya). The national average rate in filing chargesheets was 82.5, but why was Haryana a laggard at only 39.7, he further asked.
Surjewala said that due to the laxity in filing the chargesheets against the criminals and the casual attitude of the government, crime in Haryana has been increasing continuously for the last seven years. The people of the state are suffering but the government seems careless about their woes. In the year 2020, 1,165 murders, 163 gang rapes, 1,373 rape, and 2,949 kidnappings occurred in Haryana despite the lockdown and epidemic.
Surjewala said that 1,165 murders the year 2020 is a huge number for a small state like Haryana. With the murder rate of 3.9 per lakh population, Haryana ranked second among all the states and Union Territories of the country in the murder rate for the year 2020. Surprisingly, in its missive to NCRB, the Haryana Police has submitted that 105 of those were blind murders in one year only.
Surjewala said that Haryana ranked second in kidnapping rate with 10.1 kidnappingsp per lakh population. Haryana Police was able to file chargesheets for only 18.1 percent of the 2,949 kidnappings that occurred in year 2020. What’s more shocking is that the Haryana Police could not even recover the 1,377 abductees for more than a year, which tells the sad story of the law and order situation in Haryana, he further added.
