Need to increase cyber literacy among public
Lather said that there is a need to make the public aware of cyber related laws and cyber crimes as well as the precautions to be taken to prevent cyber crimes. During the Corona period, internet is being widely used in trade, education, payment and other activities.
When cyber awareness is low, people could become victims of cyber crime, he said. Lather said Rajasthan police has made an app about prevention of crimes against women and children. Rajasthan citizens and other apps are available on the website of Rajasthan Police and the public can download and use them. He informed that cyber units are functioning in every district. This unit conducts research on cyber crimes worth up to Rs 5 lakh. Research on cyber crimes over this amount is conducted by cyber police stations formed under SOG.
