Officials of Armed Police Battalion in Sylhet on Sunday said that the battalion had been working to reduce cybercrimes in the society.

The APBn is working to minimise the cyber crimes that include cyber bulling, sending, posting and spreading harmful, negative and fake contents about someone using smartphones and other electronic devices, they said.

The battalion officials made the comments while addressing a views-exchanging meeting with journalists at the 7 APbn headquarters in Sylhet.

The 7 APBn commanding officer Khondaker Faridul Islam, also an additional deputy inspector general of police, said in the programme that mostly the female smartphone users were being victims of cyber bulling in our society as the cybercriminals share the private information of the victims to someone else and on the social media platforms to embarrass or cheat them.

Cyber bulling incidents are occurred mainly by hacking the social media profiles and stealing or snatching the cell phones of the victims in our country, he said.

‘The APBn is showing remarkable success to recover the lost or stolen mobile phones and bring the cyber criminals to book after identifying them comparably with the shortest possible time,’ Khondaker Faridul said.

He said that they regularly collect information of recording general diaries and complaints submitted by victims with the respective police stations and then take necessary steps in this regard.

Responding to New Age, the battalion chief said that anyone who lost his mobile phone could file a complaint directly to the APBn offices, even without filing a GD in this regard.

‘We try our best to address the problem of a complainant without creating any harm to the individual or his or her social life,’ he said.

He said that filing a GD was not mandatory for them to begin investigation into a cybercrime.

Khondaker Faridul also urged the common people to call them to the battalion hotline numbers or the national emergency number ‘999’ immediately after losing their mobile phones or becoming a victim of cybercrime.

The 7 APBn additional superintendent Mofizul Islam and its inspector (operation) Humayun Kabir, among others, also spoke.
