Small Arms Survey research on gun violence in India

The Small Arms Survey has begun a new research project, entitled the ‘India Armed Violence Assessment (IAVA)’. The project was launched in Delhi on 20 September, along with two new papers on armed violence in India, analysing data on gun violence by region and types of crime. One paper found that from over 4,000 gun related homicides in 2008, almost two thirds occured in just three of India's 28 states.
