The number of rapes reported in the city has also gone up. While 65 cases of rape were reported in the city in 2010, the number increased to 107 in 2015.

“This shows there is an awareness in the society, and women are raising voice against crimes,” a senior officer said adding, “Actions like eve teasing, passing lewd comments and fol lowing a girl come under this section.”
