Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed on Monday said that 68 percent victims of cybercrimes in Bangladesh are women.
"So far 6,000 cases have been filed in connection with cybercrimes. Among them, most of the victims are women," the police chief said while inaugurating the 'Police Cyber Support for Women' unit at Rajarbagh Police Lines auditorium today.
The unit has been launched for helping women aiming to create safe cyberspace for women and providing technical and legal support to them and building awareness among the people against cybercrimes, said Benazir.
Now victim women can file complaints to the unit. Their problems will be solved without disclosing their identity.
Being asked by reporters whether the victim women who will complain in the unit, need to file a case or go to court, the IGP said that they will be provided service as per law. If they need to file a case, they will be advised.
The unit has been introduced under Lawful Interception Cell (LIC) of Police Headquarters.
