The HARYANA State Commission for Women organized a program on legal awareness and cybercrime at the Government College, Sector 1 on Friday.
The event, which featured Hayana Women’s Commission Chairperson Renu Bhatia as the main guest, highlighted and discussed issues such as domestic violence, dowry harassment, workplace harassment and assault through online media.
Addressing the meeting later, Deputy Inspector (SI) Sukhbir Singh, of Panchkula police, said students should avoid receiving calls or responding to messages from unknown numbers on WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook. He said that in case of abusive or obscene messages, they should file a complaint with the corresponding cyber police station.
Subsequently, the students present at the event were also informed about the frauds through the UPI payment methods.
Cyber Cell Police Station SHO Rakesh Kumar said that nowadays everyone is tempted to click on each and every link that is sent. This is a dangerous habit, as some links can lead to people getting scammed and having their bank accounts drained. To report any type of crime, residents can call the helplines 1930, 155260 and file a complaint.
