About 70% of the victims of cybercrimes in the country are teenage girls, said Palak adding: “if you are a victim of cybercrime, you can call the National Emergency Service number 999 to get help from police.”

He also urged the guardians to remain careful about the children’s activities in digital platforms.

The state minister said that to keep cyber-space safe, four preconditions have to be ensured. First, create awareness at personal level. Second, provide family and institutional education. Third, technical capability and fourth, strict enforcement of law.
