The Analysis of Crime in India says that poverty and greed has contributed towards the increase in crimes like Dacoity, Theft, Robbery and Burglary. Though dacoity and burglary have reduced over years, theft and robbery have increased, which clearly shows that the type of crimes committed have changed and there is no actual reduction.
