Additional inspector general, (Cyber), Vijay Khatri speaking at a programme organised in Bhopal on Monday.

The people should never disclose any personal information with the strangers over phone or chat as they may be cyber criminals, said MP additional inspector general,(Cyber), Vijay Khatri.

He was speaking on ‘cyber-crime and measures of prevention’ at a function organised on Sunday at Vivekananda Library.

“We all are living in a cyber world which comprises various risks. One should avail the services in the cyber world but with utmost caution to avoid being trapped in a cyber crime. Keeping extra caution and being attentive is the only way to be safe in cyber world,” said Khatri.

“Girls should take extra caution as they are the one who are being targeted the most by cyber criminals. They should not share their personal information or chat with any stranger on social media platforms,” added Khatri.

Addressing the crowd gathered during the function, he said that India was not ready to accept the new technologies in the cyber world.

“There was a hurry in the introduction of new technologies and digitalisation of various works in the country. Most of the people were not literate on computers when the cyber technologies were introduced, because of which the cases of cyber crimes are increasing every year. The only way to protect oneself is keeping caution,” said Khatri.
