Crime, City and Space: A Case of Mumbai Megapolis
The present study has been an attempt to examine spatial distribution of various forms of crimes in Mumbai city (Municipal Corporation) and find out their correlates. More specifically the attempts have been made to find out â€˜hotspotsâ€™ of various forms of crimes, to analysed the types of crimes which occur in close spatial association with each other, to interrelate the spatial dimensions to other criminogenic factors, to examine whether recent emphasis on development has drastically changed the character of crimes and its causes where space has its role to play, and to study implication of space-induced crimes to law and order in the city.
