The Mumbai police took to Twitter to launch their Sholay-style campaign against cybercrime on Monday.

Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan noted the police’s use of his dialogues, saying he supported the awareness drive.

In the first four months of the year, 178 cases of cybercrime were registered in Mumbai. Only 15 of them were solved. While cases of card fraud have gone up from last year (166 cases were registered in the first four months of 2016), the police have solved fewer cases than they did last year (22 cases were solved between January and April 2016) — a worrying trend.
