Ever since the internet came to India in August 1995, the country has seen a massive transformation. A nation that was, by and large, not part of the digital highway, saw a mobile revolution which led to the promotion and rapid adoption of the web. But this also led to cyber crimes growing at a fast pace. However, there are no figures to collaborate this, primarily because of under-reporting of these crimes.

Now you can file cyber crime cases online in Delhi

NEW DELHI: Now, you can report cybercrime online. Delhi Police commissioner Amulya Patnaik on Wednesday launched a dedicated website for such cases.

District cyber cells will automatically receive the complaints as soon as they are registered on the portal, www.cybercelldelhi.in, and initiate investigation. Eventually, there will be a cyber unit at each police station to deal with these cases.

With this, Delhiites will no longer have to make rounds of police stations, the crime branch and EOW to lodge complaints, Patnaik said. There will be interactive videos and Power Point presentations on the portal to educate visitors about new modus operandi adopted by the miscreants.

The website was unveiled in presence of computer teachers of more than 200 Delhi schools at the NDMC Convention Centre.

“The website has been conceptualised as a one-stop solution for cybercrime and cyber
