In view of increasing bank fraud cases, cyber crimes and land fraud cases being reported in the State, 60 sub-inspectors have been given training on cracking such cases at police lines in Dehradun on Tuesday.
Garhwal Range DIG Pushpak Jyoti addressed the policemen and said that due to advancement of technology and easy access of mobile phones, there has been a rapid increase in cyber crimes involving youths in various districts of the State. “Crime trend has changed. There has been a decrease in traditional crimes while cyber crimes are on the rise.
Now criminals are using technology to commit crimes. In last year, ATM cloning case involving around 100 complainants was registered under various police stations of t Dehradun district. However, district police cracked the case by arresting the accused involved in it,” he said.
“Moreover, crores of rupees are being robbed of the buyers of land. With the manifold increase in the price of land, cases related to land fraud are also on the rise. The two- day workshop has been organised for the investigating officers.
This workshop would help the investigating officers to crack the cases swiftly.
Training on the precautions to be taken while dealing with such cases and the details of section 420 of IPC would be imparted to the investigation officers in course of the workshop.
They would also be trained on how to collect important documents related to cyber crimes and land fraud cases,” he said, adding that the workshop would go a long way in checking and cracking such crimes in the coming days.
