    Orissa has set up a special police station to tackle cyber crime, a
    home department official has said.
    The first such unit in the state has come up at Rasulgarh on the
    outskirts of this city. The State Crime Record Bureau office has been
    designated to function as the cyber police station.
    "Cyber-related crime has seen an increase across the globe. The police
    station has been set up to check such cases in Orissa," the official
    "There have been allegations of fraudulent monetary transactions on
    the Net. Crimes such as hacking, dissemination of virus, cyber theft
    and intimidation through mail and cyber porn have been reported," he
    "Earlier police stations probed these crimes, but officials there were
    not well trained to handle the complaints," he said. "This prompted us
    to set up a specialised police station.
    "Officials posted at the cyber police station are specially trained to
    deal with such crimes. These cases will be investigated by this
    station only."
    "Orissa is also making the provision of accessing details of crimes
    and criminals by setting up a computerised data bank, which would be
    available at the click of a mouse," he said.
    It is also computerising its jail management system and land records.
