This study explores the use of Mathematical modeling of crime behaviour which helps to establish the relationship between crimes and socio-economic factors. The concentration of criminal activities is not proportional in every area. Criminal activities depend on socio-economic factors like population densities, unemployment, literacy rate, per capita income, schedule castes and schedule tribes etc. There is a correlation between the volume of crime and literacy rate. The equation of the line of regression is formulated to interpret the nature of relationship between crimes and literacy rate.
