Performance of Karnataka government in discharging its duties under the Prevention of Atrocities Act was pathetic and the state stood sixth in the country as far as crimes against SCs are concerned a report here said.

The Karnataka State Report on implementation of SCs and STs (Prevention of Atrocities) Act in 2010 released here today said the undivided Gulbarga district and Bangalore City topped in the number of cases reported between 2008 and 2010, while Mandya District had witnessed a surge in number of cases reported and was second highest in 2010 with 87 cases (as against 39 cases in 2009 and 29 in 2008).

Hassan and Chickballapur are additions in the top ten with steep increase in the number of atrocities. And Bangalore, Gulbarga, Bellary, Mysore, Bijapur, Kolar and Tumkur are consistently in the top ten.

In Tumkur, which is one of the 15 districts declared as atrocity prone by the state government, 101 cases were disposed off in 2010 without a single conviction by the special court.

The overall conviction rate is 5 per cent; highest rate is 25 per cent; 7 districts have nil convictions in 2010. Gulbarga (325) and Bangalore Urban (209) have disposed off the highest number of cases with a conviction rate of just 2 per cent. MORE UNI MSP VK VV SB PM1938
