BANGALORE: Unofficial records collected by individual NGOs reveal that there are over 200 people who are affected by different forms of cyber crime every month in the city.

“On an average, the cyber crime police station has been recording 100-140 cases per year. Currently we have 57 cases pending,” said DSP Devajyoti Ray.

Recognised as the country’s biggest cyber crime department, the Bangalore Police station has 8 Deputy Superintendents of police (DSPs), 6 inspectors and 12 other staff members. “We are looking for 2-3 good experts. Presently we are training 26 officers from various departments. The training consists of collection of cyber evidence, technical understanding of all aspects of analysing evidence and this training is being conducted at the cyber lab we have here. NASSCOM officials are assisting us in the training. We had a few technical experts earlier but now we are left with just one. We want someone with good knowledge of computers,” explained Ray. With the department looking for experienced people, cases are still pouring in, with solutions far from sight.
