Crime up, separate cyber police station yet to become reality

Faridabad :
While complaints regarding cyber crime — mostly financial frauds and cheating through misuse of debit and credit cards — have been piling up, the cyber cell of the local police seems to be grappling with problems of staff and facilities.

The proposal of setting up a separate cyber police station has been hanging fire for the past year, it is reported.

The cyber cell working from the Police Lines here has received around 1,200 complaints so far this year. The figure is likely to touch the 1,800 mark by the end of the year.

According to the police, the success rate has been 50 to 60 per cent. Several complaints remain unsolved due to “poor” facilities.

Admitting that the complaints were on the rise, Vinod Kumar, incharge, cyber cell, sought proper facilities and support from various agencies like the telecom companies. Setting up of a separate cyber police station would prove beneficial in tackling the complaints, he added.

A spokesperson of the Police Department claimed that work on the cyber police station was in progress, but did not give any deadline.

Majority of the complaints pertain to online frauds. Though the cyber cell incharge failed to provide details of the total cases solved this year, it is reported that the amount of money lost by the complainants each year had been more than Rs 2.5 crore. Three cases of cheating amounting to Rs 5 lakh surfaced last week.

“A common man doesn’t have the proper knowledge to approach the authorities concerned on time,” said Hema Kumari, wife of an Army man, who lost more than Rs 75,000 through ATM card cheating last year.

Whether this new police station will end cyber crime?
