Govt to set up portal for cyber-crimes against women

Govt to set up portal for cyber-crimes against women

New Delhi, Feb10 (UNI) Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said the Government has decided to establish a Cyber Crime Reporting Portal to report Cyber Crimes Against Women.
Inaugurating the 24th All-India Forensic Science Conference in Ahmedabad, Mr Singh said that the government is going to establish a dedicated Cyber Crime Laboratory to stop Crimes against Women and Children.
The Home Minister said there is a need to increase our cyber forensic capabilities in modern times and cyberspace has added new dimension and new complications. Traditional policing is not adequate to control crime in cyberspace, he added.
“Forensic science can be extremely useful in cyberspace. Our cyber forensic experts played an important role in preventing radicalisation of our youth. I laud the efforts of our cyber experts in counter-radicalisation. There have been incidents when morphed pictures are used to create confusion and tension,” Rajnath Singh mentioned in his opening remarks.
He further said many countries have successfully utilised Forensic DNA Database in their fight against crime. We are also working towards a Forensic DNA Database, he added.
“We have come up with the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems. By connecting this centralised database with courts and forensic labs we will create an Inter-Operable Criminal Justice System,” said Rajnath Singh.
“New technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain Technology, Cloud Computing, 3D Printing, Robotics and Internet of Things are posing new security challenges before us. Forensic experts should transform these challenges into opportunities,” he added.
Mr Singh also emphasized on the need for Standard Operating Procedures for all forensic labs in order to avoid contradictions in reports. “Our Police Forces need to be sensitised about forensics. They should be properly trained in forensics; specially the Investigating Officers should upgrade and update their forensic knowledge. There should be ‘Forensics Pe Charcha’(discussion on forensic) at the District Level,” said Rajnath Singh.
“Detection is the biggest deterrent for crime control. The forensic experts can play a major role in detection, investigation and criminal identification of criminals. Forensics can bring a qualitative change in investigations,” he added.
