Glad to share the impact of cybercrime investigation training conducted by ‘Akancha Srivastava Foundation’ for Pune Police on January 30th, 2024 at Cop Excellence Center of Pune City Police Commissioner Office. This training session was supported by SBI Foundation.


We trained the Pune City Police on cybercrime investigation on January 30th, 2024. Over 130 officials attended the expert investigation training including the Additional Commissioner of Police, DCP Cyber Cell, and several investigation officers.

Some of the participating officers have solved tricky cases of Bitcoin/ cryptocurrency in India. In an independent feedback process, and as you will see in the video too, these sharp officers praised our techniques and tools. That is definitely a huge validation for our content design. We make huge efforts before every training session to study that particular region, specific pain points, engage senior police officials in the process, review the content with concerned officer, train our investigators on specific need, rehearse the program flow before each session.

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. We were happy to host their AGM & the Assistant Project Manager of our Project from SBI in the session too.

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

Special thanks to Commissioner Sir, Pune City Police for tremendous opportunity.


Stay Aware, Stay Safe


Jai Hind, Jai Bharat!
