We are happy to share another round of very motivating, positive feedback of our cybercrime law training conducted by ‘Akancha Srivastava Foundation’ for Mumbai Police on March 7th, 2024 at the BKC Cyber Cell auditorium. This was supported by SBI Foundation.


Since cybercrime is ever evolving, even the application of different sections and laws are constantly shifting. Newer modus operandi also needs smarter psychological analysis. Our laws do cover every single aspect of crimes/punishment but their combination is varying. Plus, the TRAI act is equally important while filing these cases.


With technology is also playing a key role in the ongoing elections, it was a valuable session for all attendees. Deepfake & AI are relatively new tools of technology which are being used to create mischief, misinformation. Therefore we presented ways in which the different clause of Indian laws can be applied for effective policing.


Advocate Pankaj Bafna Sir, a well respected cybercrime law expert, having a rich practical experience of arguing hundreds of cybercrime related cases at Mumbai High court graciously shared all the loopholes that the law enforcement needs to close so that the accused doesn’t get away. He shared several cases in recent times where owing to the missing details at documentation level, noting the right sections cos of which it becomes easier for the accused to get relief or makes it harder for the victim to get justice.


Please do watch the testimonials of attendees on how this training will help them practically in their duties. We have been requested a series of such trainings for more personnel which we are happy to conduct, including new topics as requested by the officers present. We are also keen to conduct SOP trainings for the investigating officers as they are the key point of contacts for receiving victim complaints.


Was motivating to have Cyber Cell In charge participate in the training. Demonstrates openness of Mumbai Police to proactively learn intricacies of law & their application in cases of cybercrimes.


We are glad that the Foundation of our country’s largest bank – SBI, that serves over one fourth of banking population of India all by itself believes that cyber security is a critical topic for one and all, especially for banks, customers.



Our thanks to the very polite, professional, friendly Mumbai Police for doing what they do 24×7 to keep financial capital of our country safe. We thank you for this gigantic responsibility that you fulfil with a smile.


Hope to continue such police- public partnership as we have been doing for last 7 years.

Special thanks to Additional Commissioner Sir of Western Region for the opportunity

Stay Aware, Stay Safe


Jai Hind, Jai Bharat!
