Over the past few years, the continuing trend of calculation of pickpockets crime was counted on. This year women constitute over 91 per cent of pickpockets in the Delhi Metro network in India which was apprehended by the CISF. Delhi being the national capital region of the country this situation is a shame. Delhi Metro operations force that is tasked to provide armed security apprehended a total of 479 pickpockets, 438 out of them were women.
Over 100 operations to check pickpocketing in the full year data updated till the middle of December states that the Delhi metro is the lifeline of people in the capital of the country which carries an estimated 26 lakh commuters every day. Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) after apprehending these women states to the media that this is an overwhelming increase in the number of women indulging in these crimes. The women are handed over to the Delhi Police for legal action under the law.
A US-based Indian lady who was traveling with her jewels in the Delhi metro was recently attacked by a group of a notorious gang who were females. These gangs or women have a modus operandi; they either will carry a child so that they get other women’s sympathy easily or in a group to con and pick a purse or other valuables it is common for both men and females it’s like a technic.
There are forces which work regularly which undertake special operations the officers do not wear the uniform and walk in plain clothes so that no one knows while they keep an eye on them.CISF in the Delhi Metro last year had a record of 93% pickpockets apprehended which were by women. This year it is reduced by 2% on the scale. Crime in Delhi is continuously on the same graph and there are no immediate and better solutions out for it yet.
