NCRB data also reveals that 92 murders were committed due to disputes over water in 2018 and the most killings - 18 - took place in Gujarat.

If statistics are broken down further, they show that 1658 murders took place due to illicit relationships, 1581 due to love affairs, 913 due to dowry, 189 due to extremism/Naxalism/insurgency, 54 due to political reasons, 36 due to casteism, 29 were ‘honour’ killings and 24 murders were due to communal/religious reasons. 

These figures show that more murders were committed on account of religion, caste, and gender than due to Naxalism and extremism. But these are neither debated nor made election issues.
