HUNDREDS OF cyber cafes in Bangalore have started recording personal details of visitors to comply with a new rule aimed at tracking perpetrators of online fraud, virus attacks and terrorism. Internet users have expressed concern that the law could lead to invasion of privacy and police harassment, while cafe owners fear a drop in customers.

The Karnataka government had passed a law last year requiring cyber cafe patrons to provide proof of identity and details such as name, age and address. However, the police began enforcing this law only this week.
