According to the report, 18 people were killed in the city in a span of 15 days.
A total of 50 cars and 812 motorcycles were stolen, of which 8 cars and 80 motorcycles were snatched on gun point.
Of the 574 mobile phone thefts, 530 were cited as gun point snatchings.
Two incidents of extortion were reported in the city during the month, stated the report.
