Analysis of Criminal contestants - Assembly bye elections 2009

I have extracted the names of the politicians from Bihar who have criminal cases pending against them from the ADR published list. I have put this together in an excel sheet for easy of anyone who wants to find out the names of the candidates . Some of the eye-catching findings are
  1. 25 candidates have a serious IPC case pending against their name (generally cases like murder, attempt to murder, etc). Out of the 25 candidates 4 have been fielded by JD (U) and 4 are independant. RJD, Congress and CPI have fielded 3 candidates. The other parties have lesser than 3 candidates with serious IPC cases pending.
  2. Begusarai has 7 politicians followed by 6 in Nautan with criminal cases pending.
  3. The highest number of cases pending against any individual is 17

The most suprising part (or un-surprising part) is that none of these politicians have even been convicted in a single case.

People who would like to find out the details of the candidates can do so from the excel sheet posted at Contestants with Criminal backgrounds (Assembly bye elections 2009)

The summary is as below.
Party : Total of Serious IPC Cases
IND : 4
JD (U) : 4
CPI : 3
INC : 3
RJD : 3
CPI(M) : 2
LJSP : 2
NCP : 2
BJJD : 1
BSP : 1
Grand Total : 25

Some other statistics

  1. The average age of the politicians standing in the bye election is 47 years.
  2. The age range of the politicians is 29 to 66 years.
