Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said the Government has decided to establish a Cyber Crime Reporting Portal to report Cyber Crimes Against Women.

Inaugurating the 24th All-India Forensic Science Conference in Ahmedabad, Singh said that the government is going to establish a dedicated Cyber Crime Laboratory to stop Crimes against Women and Children.

The Home Minister said there is a need to increase our cyber forensic capabilities in modern times and cyberspace has added new dimension and new complications. Traditional policing is not adequate to control crime in cyberspace, he added.

"Forensic science can be extremely useful in cyberspace. Our cyber forensic experts played an important role in preventing radicalisation of our youth. I laud the efforts of our cyber experts in counter-radicalisation. There have been incidents when morphed pictures are used to create confusion and tension," Rajnath Singh mentioned in his opening remarks.

He further said many countries have successfully utilised Forensic DNA Database in their fight against crime. We are also working towards a Forensic DNA Database, he added.
