Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday inaugurated 14 police stations that will investigate cybercrime and economic offences in Odisha.

The CM said that cybercrimes are rapidly emerging as a dominant crime in society and his government is committed to providing the people with modern policing system with a well-trained police force to counter technology-based crimes.

“What makes it more worrisome is that it is anonymous, and not restricted by jurisdictional boundaries. Since the source of information is invariably based in servers existing in foreign countries, collection of evidence against the perpetrators becomes really challenging,” he added.

He further said that economic offences have also emerged as a blue-collar crime that not only affects the individual citizen but causes deep injuries to the financial health of the country.

The CM also inaugurated three upgraded police stations. While the first upgraded police station has been opened at Info Valley Special Economic Zone, the second has been opened at Bayalis Mouza under Cuttack Urban Police District, and the third at Pahal under Bhubaneswar Urban Police District.
