Over-representation of Muslims in Prisons

The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) released its most recent data on India’s prisoners on 31st August 2022. The report found that Muslims and other marginalized communities including Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes are incarcerated in India disproportionately to their population share. TNN as part of its product 'Nous Compact', analysed the data and presented it in its simplest visual form.
