Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, May 22: There has been a significant increase in cybercrime against women during the COVID-19-induced lockdown with “criminals” targeting them online.
The lockdown is in place to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Sources told early times that some miscreants are morphing images and threatening women online. “There is a whole racket going on where women have been threatened online by the miscreants,” said the sources.
Sources said that especially the cases of “sextortion” have increased during the lockdown.
Sources said that in these times people are connecting through technology but forgetting the security component.
“Immediately after lockdown, we saw a rise in cases of misinformation, fake news and women getting duped online. Many women do not want to make official complaints in these cases,” sources said.
Sources said that Cyber Police has been receiving complaints through its channels and it has been seen that people are reluctant in filing complaints.
“Creation of fake profiles, cyber bullying and online stalking are bigger challenges at this time. Insensitive comments on posts are also intimidating, sources said.
Sources said that such cybercrimes can be prevented through education on technology. “Often it is seen there is lack of awareness among women on where to reach out when something happens. There is cyber police who they can contact. They can reach out to them if they need help,” sources said.
Sources said that Cyber police has already advised women to remain careful in the cyber space. “We advise women to not share their personal pictures or details on social media as it’s not safe. Women should realize that at times people known to them can also take advantage,” said one of the top officials here in cyber police.
Sources said that authorities are all set to find the suspects responsible for online frauds and violence against women, using modern technology.
The official said that in some cases, men are morphing images and threatening women. “These are among some cases where many women don’t want to make official complaints, fearing stigma”.
However, authorities in Cyber police encouraged cyber-crime victims to come forward and assured identities of victims would remain confidential.
“Amid COVID19, people don’t need to visit Police station but can file online complaints on www.cybercrime.gov.in” they said.
Cyber Police is taking note of complaints where persons have assumed fake identities with malicious intention to cheat people.
Quoting section 66D of Information Technology Act, one of the top officials here in cyber police said that crime through the use of computer or otherwise cybercrime, whereby a person assumes fake identity with a malafide intention to deceive another, is punishable with three years’ imprisonment and fine up to one lakh rupees.
