New Delhi, Jul 10 (PTI): Women can kill not only with their looks but literally too as convicts belonging to the fair gender outdo their male counterparts when it comes to murders.


According to an annual survey report of 2011, of the 2,751 convicts lodged inside the Tihar jail last year for various crimes, 46.15 per cent of female inmates have been convicted for murder charges alone as against the male count of 33.47 per cent.


Along with this, 6.73 per cent of women have been convicted in attempt to commit murder cases as against 5.93 per cent of their male counterparts.


Female inmates also top the chart in kidnapping and abduction cases, dowry death cases and Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances cases.


Surprisingly, the review also showed that 7.69 per cent of females were convicted in rape cases too.


"The ratio of convict population rose from 20 per cent in the year 2009 to 25 per cent in the year 2010 because of better disposal of criminal cases and this has brought down the percentage of undertrial population from 80 per cent of the previous year to 75 per cent," DG, Tihar Prisons, Neeraj Kumar said.


One central jail (Jail No 6) is dedicated to women prisoners. This jail has 401 undertrials and 104 convicts which also includes foreigners.

Wow, mind-boggling revelations; true we hardly know women!
