There has been a 43.6 percent increase in Delhi's crime graph in 2013 over 2012, and crime against women rose a whopping 412 percent in the past year, Delhi Police said Friday.

A staggering 73,958 cases were registered under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in 2013, up from 51,479 in the previous year.  The police were able to solve 48.8 percent of the cases.

"Strict instructions have been given to police stations that each and every complaint be registered, and people not be turned away. This is why (the number of) cases have increased," Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi told the media at the force's annual press conference.
