Mumbai ranked 45th, Delhi 52nd on world’s safe cities list

Bangkok rated 47th safest city, Tokyo tops Tokyo ranked safest city in the world for third straight time, Toronto in top 10

And while Asia Pacific cities dominated six spots out of the top 10, EIU said that geographic region did not have any statistical link with results.

Hong Kong has seen its position drop significantly on a list of the world's safest cities while key regional rival Singapore held its ground as second safest metropolis in the world, edged out only by Tokyo, which maintained its No.1 rank.

Hong Kong ranks at 20th place, dropping out of the top 10 since the last SCI in 2017 while Kuala Lumpur ranks 35th behind Beijing and Shanghai which are in 31 and 32 place respectively. The others are Washington D.C., Toronto, Amsterdam, and Copenhagen. London came in 14th, followed by NY.

A total of 60 cities were studied across 57 indicators covering four pillars - digital security, health security, infrastructure security and personal security report - in the latest report, which was sponsored by Japanese IT giant NEC Corporation.

According to the report, Tokyo, Japan, ranked number one overall, with a score of 92 out of a possible 100.

5 killed, 21 injured in Texas mass shooting
Eric Finley, marketing director of Texas' UMC Health System, said Anderson was in satisfactory condition at a hospital in Lubbock. The New York Times reported that he had just been fired from his job a few hours before the shooting spree took place.

Ms Naka Kondo, senior editor of the EIU and editor of the SCI 2019 report, said: "The research highlights how different types of safety are thoroughly intertwined - that it is rare to find a city with very good results in one safety pillar and lagging in others". Washington, D.C.'s catapult up into the top 10 - the US capital came in at No. 23 in the last report - is in large part down to changes in the data used to compile the index.

New Delhi has yet again secured itself a spot on a list of the world's safest cities, something that comes as a shocker to most Indians.

Also in the final five are Caracas in Venezuela, Yangon in Myanmar, Karachi in Pakistan and Dhaka in Bangladesh.

They said, "Singapore's high rank on digital security is due to its performance on input parameters (such as cybersecurity laws) and its performance on outputs (risk of malware infection)".

"U.S. cities continue to perform well in digital security as the government strengthens its cybersecurity regulations, while Canadian cities tend to fare better than their US counterparts in personal security", said Vaibhav Sahgal, a consultant with the Economist Intelligence Unit.
