In the case of the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, an angle of drugs has been added. This has led to questions whether Sushant's suicide was also caused by drugs? This question is also right because the question arises because according to the data of National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), there have been 31 thousand suicides due to drugs in the last five years. The maximum 7,860 suicides occurred in 2019. If you look at the figure of five years, then 17 suicides every day and if you look at the figure of 2019, then every day 21 suicides are due to drugs only.
This figure is shocking that every year the number of suicides caused by drugs is increasing. There was a 41% increase in 2015 to 2016, 29% more in 2016 to 2017, 7% more in 2017 to 2018 and 9.7% more in 2018 to 2019. Drug use has become a major problem in suicide cases since 2016.
Comparing the number of men and women in the suicide caused by drugs in the last five years is not correct. From 2015 to 2019, the percentage of men who succumbed to drugs has been between 95% and 98.2%. It has increased continuously.
If we look at the suicide figures due to drugs only in 2019, Maharashtra leads with 2,256. Karnataka is second (1,133 cases), half of which is Maharashtra. There are 1,099 (ie 14%) in Madhya Pradesh, 1,042 (ie 13.25%) in Tamil Nadu and 792 (ie 10%) in Kerala. Combining the suicide in these five states, it accounts for 81% of the suicide caused by drugs in the country.
Even though Maharashtra has the highest number of suicides due to drugs, if you look at these deaths as a proportion of the population, Kerala is at the forefront. That is, there are 23 people on every one million population due to drugs. It is followed by Maharashtra (18), Karnataka (17), Tamil Nadu (14) and Madhya Pradesh (13).
When we go beyond the states and talk about cities, the shocking figures come out. In Chennai, the maximum number of 329 people succumbed to drugs. It was followed by Bangalore (143), Nagpur (94), Mumbai (88) and Pune (70). That is, the top 2 cities are South Indian while three cities in the top 5 cities are from Maharashtra alone.
