HYDERABAD: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Friday said a strategy to prevent cyber crime will be evolved soon.

Voicing concern over rising cyber crime, he said he has asked the home ministry to prepare an effective strategy.

He was speaking at the passing out parade of 66 Regular Recruits of the Indian Police Service at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy here Friday.

The home minister said 2013-14 statistics show cyber crime is increasing at the rate of 50 percent per year with Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh being among the most affected states.

Academy director Aruna Bahuguna said the core mission of the academy is to provide training for the police officers of tomorrow: one who can not only handle regular law enforcement but also more ambiguous gender, marginalised and communal situations in a sensitive manner.

The 143 officer trainees who completed 46-week training, include 28 women.

The 2013 batch include 15 foreign officer trainees - five from Nepal, six from Bhutan and four from Maldivies.
