Abstract: The present article chronicles the dynamic world of crime in Kolkata from 1946 to 2002 through changes in the socio-political landscape of the city. This gory world of crime cannot be analyzed through western discourses. It has its own indigenous nature, structure, values and mode of operandi. The article discusses few salient features of this world such as criminal-politician nexus. The article discusses how traditional crimes such as dacoity, robbery gave way to heinous crime such as kidnapping, extortion and murder. The article discusses the new trends of crime such as ‘supply syndicates’ that have mushroomed in different parts of Kolkata.
