The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) report has placed Mumbai first in offences against senior citizens and second, after Delhi, in crimes against women as well as children.

However, when overall crime, including those under SLL, was taken into account, UP shot towards the top of the list.

Cyber crime has witnessed a rapid increase as the State registered 616 cases in 2016 when compared to 536 cases in 2015 and the NCRB report has put the AP in the sixth place in the list of States with highest cyber-crime cases. Around 4,882 cases of rape were reported in the state in 2016, followed by UP with 4,816 cases and Maharashtra with 4,189 cases.

This category has also shown an increasing trend, with the number of cases reported in 2016 standing at 12,317 over 11,592 cases in 2015. A total of 15,310 cases were reported in the union territory in 2016, down from 17,222 in 2015.
