As crime conviction rate plunges, govt asks DGP to submit a report

The conviction rate in Maharashtra has dropped from 58.29% in 2020 to 41.36% in the first half of 2023. The state government is seeking a report on the situation and plans to tweak rules to hold public prosecutors and investigating officers accountable. The drop in conviction rate has prompted the home department to make changes in policies related to crime investigation and court battles. Some districts, particularly those with political interference and backward areas, have consistently low conviction rates. Witnesses turning hostile and ineffective public prosecutors are cited as major factors affecting the conviction rate.
