Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday directed the authorities to set up 57 new cyber police stations in the state within the next two months. The decision was taken at a high-level meeting convened by the Chief Minister at his official residence to review the cyber security arrangements in the state.

According to the official release, he assured the state police that the government will equip them at all levels to effectively control cybercrime. The Chief Minister directed that the cyber crime police stations, currently operating at the regional level, be expanded to all 75 districts and the cyber cells currently operating at the district level, be expanded to all police stations, the release stated.

57 new cyber police stations will be set up

Following the instructions of the chief minister, 57 new cyber police stations will be set up in the state within the next two months, while cyber cells will also be functional in every police station apart from cyber help desks. All cyber police stations will be set up in local police lines, the release added.

“In recent times, the nature of crime has changed due to the misuse of technology. Diverse kinds of cyber frauds related to customer care, pension, electricity bill, work from home, sextortion, loan app, parcel, franchisee, fake betting app, crypto investment fraud and Ponzi scheme fraud are being seen today. The common man is becoming a direct victim of this. To avoid this, we have to be vigilant at every level,” CM Yogi was quoted as saying in the release.

Cyber awareness to be included in  school curriculum

Emphasising that awareness is the most important means to prevent cyber crimes, he directed the officials to prepare awareness material immediately and implement it, in addition to making it part of the school curriculum. "Apart from this, by training Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSAs) and District Inspector of Schools (DIOS) as master trainers, the principals and teachers should be sensitised about cyber crime in a phased manner followed by students and their parents," he said.

Stressing the need for proper training of the police force for the investigation of cyber crimes, CM Yogi said that five police officers from each district should be trained at the state level and these trained officers should train five inspectors/sub-inspectors from each police station of their district regarding the course available on the portal.
