In the state capital Bhopal, as many as 15 cops were booked on rape charges, and six in Jabalpur district. The minister also clarified that these cases were reported in the last 12 years, and in many cases, cops were acquitted as the charges imposed against them were found fake.

The home minister revealed the figures while answering a question put up by former minister and Congress MLA Jitu Patwari. He sought an answer regarding the number of police personnel booked for rape charges, the number of encounters done by Madhya Pradesh police, and the number of people who died in police custody.

Responding to that Mishra, who is the parliamentary affairs minister in Madhya Pradesh Assembly informed that as many as 45 encounters were reported between 2010 to 2022. He further told the House that out of the total, 42 encounters occurred in the Gwalior district.

In the same period (from 2010 to 2022), 13 people were reported died in police custody, while 31 persons died by suicide in different jails in Madhya Pradesh.
