Official data in the public domain was scanty. The source for the study has mainly been the material available on the courts’ and the National Crime Records Bureau’s websites. The analysis and scripting of the present report was completed when Crime in India 2016 was published. The 2016 data has been weaved into the study wherever possible, and may not be reflected in all Charts and Tables. The available data was limited in as much as it did not cover all the aspects that we would have liked to include to give more soul to this report. Maybe perusal of the courts’ records, especially the witnesses testimonies, would have given further insights into the study, but we did not have access to the same. In order to personalise the study, references have been made to cases handled, and stakeholders interviewed by HAQ and FACSE.
