The number of incidents, in absolute terms, in a state does not reveal the true information about crime rate as the population varies from state to state. Crime rate is calculated per 1,00,000 popoulation. Crime rate for atrocities against SCs stood at 43.4% for Madhya Pradesh, 42.0% for Rajasthan and 32.4% for Gujarat and 25.2% for UP. Clearly, manyBJP ruled states have a higher crime rate than UP.
