The Assam Cyber Police effectively halted a total of Rs 50 lakh from flowing to cybercrimes.
The Financial Cyber Fraud Reporting and Management System, which was implemented a month ago, has prevented such cases from falling into the hands of cybercriminals.
Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta, Director-General of Assam Police, stated that, unlike any other state, this facility operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to develop the system and make it impregnable.
And we've already achieved a huge milestone in keeping money out of the hands of cybercriminals.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi exhorted new police recruits, saying, "I am confident the young IPS probationers will work beyond the police stations and HQ. They will work among the people and do their best to address their problems." Modi, speaking to the IPS probationers, emphasised the importance of keeping police ready around the clock, especially in times of technological disruptions. He emphasised the importance of doing unique cybersecurity trials, research, and approaches.
Modi used video conferencing to address the IPS probationers at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy. During the ceremony, he also engaged with the new recruits. Amit Shah, Union Home Minister, and Nityanand Rai, Minister of State (Home), were also present.
