Cyber Crime Investigation In India

Modernisation of police force of India is need of the hour. We need modern police forces that can easily deal with technology related crimes and its misuses. With growing cases of cyber crimes in India, people are finding themselves helpless as they are unable to get justice in a timely and proper manner.

This is happening as Indian police force lacks the cyber crime investigation capabilities. Even the cyber crime cells of India lack expertise in fields like cyber law and cyber crimes. The truth is that police in India needs urgent cyber law training and a trained cyber police force of India is urgently needed.

There is no ready reference for cyber crime investigation in India. Recently, Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB), the techno legal segment of exclusive techno legal ICT and IP firm of India Perry4Law, informed that a cyber crime investigation manual for various stakeholders of India would be available very soon.

This is the exclusive techno legal cyber crime investigation manual of India. The manual is in the final phase of preparation and it may be available to governmental departments and general public after few months. You may also download the first cyber crime investigation manual of India if an electronic version of the same is also released by Perry4Law and PTLB.

Police in India urgently needs good techno legal trainings in the fields like cyber law, cyber forensics, digital evidencing, etc. PTLB has been providing techno legal trainings to police officers for long and the cyber crime investigation manual is a part of this initiative.To improve the cyber crimes investigation skills of police officers of India as well as to help in the successful prosecution and punishment of the cyber criminals, Perry4Law and PTLB are also imparting exclusive online techno legal trainings in the fields like cyber law, cyber forensics, digital evidencing and much such other training.

With these pro active initiatives, cyber crime investigation and prosecution would be successful in India to a great extent. However, the government of India needs to take the issue seriously. Techno legal issues like cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, etc needs a national level policy decision. The sooner it is done the better it would be for the interest of India.
