“India has been witnessing an unprecedented increase in general crime due to which hundreds of people lose lives and the acts of criminals are threatening the integrity of country besides causing tremendous pressure on Union and State Governments, belt forces and many other organs of the country”, they said while disclosing that country loses about 15% to 20% of its GDP because of crime problems.
“We have seen that due to multiple reasons our approach to tackle these problems is not working properly. The reason is that the different political dispensations have not viewed the problem seriously and have given no attention to the fact that the intensity of crime can be reduced by taking corrective steps at different levels”, they said, adding “the individuals and organizations working in this field have got very little support from the Governments and the society at large”.
