Safety of women and children is not something we haven’t heard of, before. With the ever-growing crime rate, India has its own share leading up to it. Gone are the days when the newspapers reported about horrid crimes taking place at some far away location in the middle of nowhere or late night at some empty street. Home had been the safest place to be at, then. Not anymore. Cybercrime has made it impossible for anyone to feel safe anywhere.
To spread the perception among the youth, an awareness session on “Prevention of Cyber Crime: Women & Child Safety” was organised by JLU School of Commerce & Economics and JLU School of Law at Jagran Lakecity University’s Student Enrichment Hub on 12th September 2018. The guests of honour were Shri Rajesh Singh Bhadoria, SP Cyber Crime, Shri Rashmi Khariya, DSP Cyber Crime and Shri Sanjay Somani, Samajik Nayay Jila Sadasya.
