Haryana Police Identifies 50 Hotspot Areas across 7 States to Combat Cybercrime

Chandigarh, 11 December: In a major initiative to combat cybercrime, Haryana Police has identified 50 hotspot areas across 7 states in the country where cyber fraud cases are known to originate. To effectively tackle these cases, cyber teams have been deployed in these areas to not only control cyber fraud activities but also apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to justice.

Haryana Director General of Police, Mr. Shatrujeet Kapur, revealed that the maximum number of cyber fraud cases reported in Haryana originate from Rajasthan, with 21 identified hotspot areas in the state. Similar hotspots have been identified in other states, including Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Delhi, West Bengal, and Telangana. Mr. Kapur emphasized that cyber teams are regularly dispatched to these states to actively counter cyber fraud activities.

Moving forward in the realm of cyber security, a collaborative effort is being undertaken by nodal officers of banks and the Cyber Helpline 1930 team. This collaboration aims to freeze cyber criminals’ finances within the critical first hour of reported incidents, working closely with bank personnel to facilitate the process. Mr. Kapur urged the public to remain vigilant and avoid clicking on suspicious links on their phones. Additionally, people must not disclose personal information related to their bank accounts to anyone. Even a minor oversight can make individuals vulnerable to cyber fraud.
