DIMAPUR, JANUARY 18: Citing the increasing cyber crime cases and difficulties faced by victims, the Tenyimi Students’ Union Dimapur has requested Deputy Chief Minister Y Patton, who also holds the Home portfolio, to establish a cyber cell in Dimapur.
In a letter to the deputy chief minister, the union pointed out that Nagaland has only one cyber cell, at PHQ Kohima, and there is a need for more of such facilities.
According to the union, due to unavailability of resources in Dimapur police stations, victims of cyber crimes are compelled to commute to Kohima even to file an FIR.
Therefore, it requested Patton to set up one cyber cell in Dimapur district with certified examiners to do the analysis of seized electronic gadgets.
