Five cyber squads to detect cybercrime cases


PUNE: The Pune police have formed five specialized teams to investigate and detect cybercrime 
cases, including online matrimonial and job frauds. “It has become a necessity that police embrace 
the professional approach towards such crimes by improving their efficiency and expertise.

To check the rising cybercime cases, five teams have been formed, each of which is being headed by a police inspector and has a sub-inspector and 3-4 constables as other members,” deputy commissioner of police (cyber) Sambhaji Kadam. 

Each team would investigate specific type of crime, for which they have already been trained. “The members will upgrade their knowledge, techniques and procure softwares for the detection of a particular crime,” he said, adding that a team would only focus on online job frauds, while another on matrimonial website frauds.

“A dedicated team will just investigate banking and card frauds, while another will probe crimes happening on social media, such as defamation and obscenity. The teams will coordinate with officials of different websites and cellphone application to solve these crimes as soon as possible,” Kadam said. 

These five teams will be posted at the cybercrime police station at Shivajinagar, which started functioning independently on Tuesday. It has five inspectors, nine-sub inspectors / assistant inspectors and 30 constables. “More computer savvy staff will be provided to the cybercrime police station soon,” Kadam said.
