Weeks after National Crime Records Data (NCRD) stating that crimes against women were on peak in Bangalore city, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) has rubbished these allegations. He has said asked the people not to believe the reports of NCRD and the media. He has also said that the NCRD counts the cases filed under immoral traffic prevention act as crimes against women, which was why the number was so high. He has also said that the maximum number of rape cases recorded in the city were not more than 15.  Further he said, most of the rape cases were eloped cases and mentioned that he didn't have the exact data.

Taking on NCRD and mentioning that its statistics cannot be relied upon, the DCP has stressed that police would hereafter file its own statistics on crimes against women.
