Mumbai: Shortage of Police Force & Judges, high pendency in crime cases against Women & Children.

Shashwat Mishra & Anushka Pathak, Mumbai Uncensored, 3rd January 2022:

Law and order in the city of Mumbai has seen a deteriorating sign in the span of the last two years. The said finding is based on the white paper released by Praja Foundation, a non-partisan organization working towards enabling accountable governance.

The report presents the state of policing and law and order in Mumbai. The report covers different aspects under the realm of policing and controlling law and order in the city. As far as the investigation of offenses is concerned the report suggests a high level of pendency in the investigation of offenses. This includes high pendency in the investigation of cases like crime against women (77%), children (80%), and SLL (special and local laws crimes) 77% as of 2020. 

The next aspect of this report is the pendency of cases for forensic investigation. In 2019 55% of cases went for forensic investigation but this percentage dropped to 50% in the year 2020. There is also a  huge gap in the investigation of IPC cases which is about 70%. These gaps in the investigation of IPC cases are alarming and need prompt cognizance from the police. 

The current situation of law and order in Mumbai can also be attributed to the shortage of personnel in both, police and the judiciary. The data as of 31st July 2021 states the number of the sanctioned strength of police personnel was 51,255, of which only 41,396 are rendering their services, which suggests a shortage of 19% personnel. There is also a shortage of police officers involved in the investigation which accounts for 18% of the shortage in PSI posts. 

Looking at the grim situation of law and order of the city, there is an immediate requirement for the implementation of police reforms to improve the current situation. Police Complaints Authority (PCA) was set up and is currently in its initial stage. However, PCA is not operational for the Konkan region, which consists of the Mumbai region. It became operational for Mumbai only in September 2021.

Another ancillary issue related to the shortage of police personnel is the fact that the officers who are involved in the investigation also have to perform law and order functions, which really affects the speed of investigation. There needs to be a separation between officers who carry out law and order functions and officers who conduct investigations. Furthermore, the State Security Commission (SSC) which lays down broad policy guidelines and also evaluates the overall performance of police personnel has also not been set up. The MLAs in the assembly need to make sure that deliberations on the issue of law and order happen and laws with respect to the same are passed in the assembly.      

Mumbai city’s state of law and order needs dire attention, as per Praja Foundation. The report suggests a high level of pendency in the investigation of offenses. There is also a huge gap in the investigation of IPC cases. There is an immediate requirement for the implementation of police reforms to improve the current situation. The MLAs in the assembly need to make sure that deliberations on the issue of law and order happen and laws with respect to the same are passed in the assembly.

Khushi Thawani, Mumbai Uncensored, 4.1.2023:

The occurrences of Hindu girls being murdered by Muslim men because they turned down their approaches appear to be unabated. The frequent cases of love jihad in 2022 have shocked the nation, murder of Shraddha Walkar, Rubika Paharia, Urvashi Vaishnav, Neelam Devi, Nidhi Gupta, Ankita Kumari and others are example of this.  The police reported on December 27, 2022, that a Muslim guy named Shahbaz Khan allegedly killed a 20-year-old Hindu girl by stabbing her 51 times with a screwdriver after she refused to talk to him. This awful crime occurred in Chhattisgarh’s Korba District.

This terrible occurrence occurred on December 24, 2022, near the pump house colony of South Eastern Coalfields Limited (SECL), as per city superintendent of police (Korba) Vishwadipak Tripathi. “When the accused showed up at the house, the victim was by herself. He put a pillow over her mouth to block her screams and stabbed her 51 times with a screwdriver”, according to the police.

When he got home, the victim’s brother discovered her lying in a pool of blood. The official reported that the victim later passed away in the hospital.

Neelkusum Patra was recognized as the victim. Additionally, early investigations have shown that the victim and the accused, Shadab Khan, both from Jashpur District, were friends from past three years when the accused was a conductor of a passenger bus. 

Khan eventually relocated to Gujarat’s Ahmedabad for employment, and the two kept in touch by phone, the official said. However, things took an unusual turn when she refused to speak to him and the accused started threatening her parents.

While the accused Shadab felt abandoned and assumed his prey’s relationship with another man, the victim Neelkusum ceased communicating with Shadab due to his inappropriate connections and interaction with other girls. The victim’s family claims that before, Shahbaz threatened Neelkusum with grave repercussions if she ended their connection.

Khushi Thawani, Mumbai Uncensored, 30.12.22:

Once again, a case of Love Jihad has come to the fore in Satna. A couple was traveling in the train. On the information of VHP and Bajrang Dal, the railway police deboarded the couple from the train in Satna. The little girl was underage, hence was taken into police custody. Whereas, the family members of the girl were informed and called to Satna.


Satna City Kotwali Police and GRP had dropped the man and a minor girl traveling by Patna-Secunderabad Express at Satna station on Sunday night. Both are residents of Muzaffarpur. The young man is a Muslim, and he identified himself as Sahil Khan. However, he had extended their intimacy by introducing himself to her as ‘Bhavani Singh’.
According to Bajrang Dal post holder, Raj Bahadur Mishra, information regarding a young man riding in the train with a little girl was obtained. During the trip, there was a fight between the two. The passengers began to have suspicions that the young man and the young girl may not be of the same religion.

Over the phone, one of the passengers told a friend in Satna about this and through him the Bajrang Dal Karyakartas learned of the news. The GRP and City Kotwali police were notified by the Bajrangis. Many Bajrangi and VHP karyakartas also arrived at the station. The police, who climbed from both ends of the train as it approached Satna station’s platform number 1, immediately apprehended the young man and the young girl. They were both taken to the GRP post and questioned there. The young man is Muslim, and his real name is Sa .

According to the GRP, an investigation is being conducted.

“This is a case of ‘false identity’ for Love Jihad, and it has been observed that thousands of Hindu Girls are trapped by such men every year. The trapped girls are either converted to Islam after marriage, or they are either raped, or murdered if they refuse to convert” said Siddhant Mohite, Founder of Saffron Think Tank.
