Domestic Violence continues to be a serious concern, with the National Commission for Women registering over 6,900 complaints in 2022 alone. These cases accounted for around 23% of the 30,900-plus complaints registered by NCW across different categories of crimes against women. The Covid-19 pandemic phase showed that total complaints across categories rose over 30% from about 23,700 in 2020 to around 30,800 in 2021.
