Hyderabad: The crime rate in the state rose by 12 per cent in 2017. Crimes against women increased by 18 per cent, cases of cheatings, kidnap and abduction went up only marginally. Director General of Police M. Mahendar Reddy attributed the rise to rapid urbanisation.

“We are registering FIRs whenever someone approaches us with a complaint. Moreover, there is a rapid urbanisation in all commissionerates, including Rachakonda, Cyberabad and Khammam. So with many people settling in these areas, crimes are bound to increase,” he said.
