Case no. 10K: Bengaluru cybercops face a digital glitch

Saturday, 30 Nov, 11.40 am

The cybercrime police station of Bengaluru is facing a digital glitch while registering cases and it is unable to file 10,000th case, according to a report by The Times of India.

The system to register FIR in the cybercrime station does not have the bandwidth to register a five-digit case, as a result, it can only register 9,999 cases as a year. Thus, police stations in Karnataka have stopped registering cases. It has also announced, in a note posted on its doors, that the station will shut down due to technical issues.

'Since the portal used to generate FIR doesn't take five-digit numbers, we have stopped taking complaints in the cybercrime police station.
