Newly created cyber crime police stations in each police district will start functioning from Wednesday in the national capital.
There are 15 districts of Delhi Police in Delhi.
In a conversation with ANI, Deputy Commissioner of Police, New Delhi Deepak Yadav said that cyber crime has increased significantly in Delhi. "Keeping this in mind, it has been decided to set up a cyber cell police station in all the districts," he said.
"Criminals have come up with new ways to cheat people. Cyber criminals, nowadays, are very cleverly hacking people's OTP (One Time Password) and withdrawing money from their accounts. Apart from this, they are installing and using unverified softwares, hacking WhatsApp data etc. Keeping this in mind, these cyber police stations have been created," Deepak Yadav said.
