With Hyderabad becoming increasingly digitised, cyber crimes too have proliferated. According to CCS records, about 14,000 cases have been booked till November end. A mere 23 of these cases have been solved and four of the accused arrested. Speaking to the media, joint commissioner of police (detective department) Avinash Mohanty said: “A substantial number of cyber crime cases has been registered. I don’t think the number will come down in the next few years. These crimes will continue proliferating till penetration of digital technology gets stabilised.” Investigators need expertise and skill to crack these frauds. Some of them require considerable effort and time. “We are maintaining a database of phone numbers and bank accounts through which frauds have been committed. We are sharing the same with a lot of agencies. This is helping us keeping tabs on new cases,” Mr Mohanty stated.
