The Centre is likely to appoint a cyber security coordinator to deal with threats such as the recent spate of digitally manipulated images and messages that provoked violence against people from the northeast.

A high ranking official said a review committee has been trying to identify and remove provocative content.

The proposed cyber security coordinator will be part of the National Security Council Secretariat, said the official.

The official said most of the internet identities from which such provocative content originated turned out to be fake, but the government has identified some groups and individuals behind it.
