PANAJI: Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Tuesday, reiterating his seriousness in ensuring the safety of women and children, said the state government will not tolerate any crime against them.
He said the necessary changes will be made to the Indian Penal Code (IPC) within a short period of time to ensure strict action against the perpetrators.
“The process to make the required changes to the IPC has started,” Sawant said.
Recently, Sawant said the state government was considering a “pink police force” to tackle crime against women. He also said that the state government would soon take more action to ensure the safety of women in the state.
The chief minister said further innovations will be introduced to the police service before December 19.
CCTV cameras have been installed in all state police stations, he said.
Inaugurating the Cybercrime Training Lab as part of the Cybercrime Prevention Program against Women and Children in Ribandar, Sawant said it will help ensure their cybersecurity.
Sawant said the cyber lab was launched a year ago on a trial basis, and as of 2020, 24 cases have been registered, of which 14 have been detected and 10 are under investigation. In 2021, to date, 16 cybercrime cases have been recorded, of which 10 have been detected and six are under investigation.
The chief minister urged the state’s population, especially the elderly, not to share personal details, including details of Aadhar and PAN, among others. He said there was a need to raise more awareness about cybercrime.
