Nagaland Govt asked to set up more Cyber Cells

Dimapur, January 18 (MExN): The Tenyimi Students' Union Dimapur (TSUD) has written to Nagaland Home Minister Y Patton, drawing attention to the need for more resources to deal with cyber crimes in the state.

The letter addressed to Patton who also holds the Deputy Chief Minister and Road & Bridges portfolios, was issued to the media on Monday.  The letter was appended by TSUD President Rukewezo Wetsah and Finance Secretary Asin Rengma.
In the letter, the union pointed out that the state has only one Cyber Cell located at the Nagaland Police Headquarter in Kohima, and underscored the need more such facilities, “with the increasing cyber crime cases in the state.”

It stated that victims of cyber crimes are compelled to commute to Kohima even to file an FIR due to unavailability of resources in Dimapur Police Stations and as such, requested that one “Cyber cell for Dimapur district with Certified Examiners to do the analysis of seized electronic gadgets,” be set up in Dimapur, in the interest of the public.
