Department of Criminology


The Problem of Crime has been increasing at an alarming rate over the years. Apart from higher incidence and rate of crime, what is much more alarming is the new forms, their nature and pattern of crimes. Though various measures have been taken to combat crime, still it baffles the Criminal Justice Professionals and Policy Makers because of its complexity. On the one hand, traditional forms of crimes like caste and communal violences increase and while new forms of crimes like terrorism, youth violence, corruption, economic offences, crimes against women, child abuse etc., are also increasing on the other.
