We will have fully trained and skilled staff in the cyber crime police station,” said city police commissioner E Radhakrishana.

VADODARA: Fleeced online? Soon you will be able to register a complaint at a cyber crime police station in the city. To ensure speedy investigations in cyber frauds, city police commissioner has decided to have a dedicated police station. A proposal has been sent to the state government and once approved, the city will become first in Gujarat to have a separate cyber crime police station. “Having a dedicated cyber crime police station will help us focus on internet frauds that are increasing by the day. We expect the state government to accept our proposal soon, following which we will start the police station.

We will have fully trained and skilled staff in the cyber crime police station,” said city police commissioner E Radhakrishana. The police station will have a staff of 60, including a police inspector and five sub-inspectors. Radhakrishana said the police department has several cops, who are software engineers and have sound knowledge of computers. The city currently has a cyber cell that is a part of the detection of crime branch (DCB). But cyber cell officials aren’t able to focus completely on cyber frauds as they have to investigate other cases too.

The cyber crime police station will register, investigate and file chargesheets of cyber frauds. At present, cyber fraud victims have to run from one police station to other for getting their complaint lodged and investigations seldom make any headway due to untrained staff and lack of time. Recently a complaint of 99 people being cheated by fraudsters, who siphoned off their money by claiming to be bank officials, was lodged at the cyber cell in the crime branch. The police are also preparing to launch a cyber crime helpline that will quickly register complaint and help the victims get back their money in their bank accounts. . . . .
