Yes! Soon people may register their complaints online to Lucknow-based cyber crime cell. The cell has developed its user-friendly website which will be operational in a week’s time, says circle officer Hazratganj, Dinesh Yadav, who is the nodal officer of the cell.

Yadav says the website has been designed to keep the victim’s ease on mind-he will be able to register his complaint comfortably by entering the subject (nature of the crime), crime details, complainant’s contact number and address. This is not all.

The moment the victim finishes filling up details, he will be sent a computer-generated codeword on his cellphone in order to avoid bogus complaints.

All the person will have to do then is enter the code in the given slot and get the complaint registered.

This way the genuineness of the complainants would be checked, Yadav says and adds, “The complaint’s registration process is very simple and short. People could use the guide in the ‘How to Report’ section. Once the complaint has been registered, it will be our duty to approach the victim and initiate probe.”

There are only two cyber cells in the state (other in Agra). Now people can approach us through the e-way and get their grievances addressed with scheduled updates on the case status.

He says the online registration facility will help the cyber crime victims to register their complaints without coming to the cell.

People may approach the cyber crime cell through e-mailcybercelllucknow@nic.in .

Besides they may check the case status by going into the complaint status option given on the website.

The website contains several sections which inform about cautions and measures to avoid falling prey to the cyber criminals.

The site would also suggest safety tips while doing net banking and secure your mail and social website account.

It would also sensitise the users for not up loading personal content on net, which could be used by cyber criminals to commit fraud with them and intrude their privacy.

Cyber Crime Cell Lucknow is located at: Cyber Crime Cell, Lucknow, 3,Valmiki Marg, Hazratganj, Phone:0522-2625143 Email: cybercelllucknow@nic.in
