Govt is planning to amend Police Act: Chennithala

Thiruvananthapuram: The State government is contemplating amending the Police Act to effectively check cyber crimes, Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala said Tuesday.

Speaking at a seminar on 'Social media' organised by the IT cell of KPCC at Indira Bhavan here, he said state police have certain limitations in checking cyber crimes in view of quashing of some provisions of the Act by the Supreme Court.

As a solution to this, government plans to amend Kerala Police Act for effectively checking cyber crimes, he said.

Cyberdome, a high-tech nodal center for cyber security and innovations coming up at Technopark here would be operational after the local body polls next month, he said.

The new system, the first of this kind in the country, would speed up investigation into cyber crimes and would also help prevent such crimes, he said.

Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the role of the social media has increased now and added that one should uphold dignity while using it.

KPCC President V M Sudheeran urged Congress workers to use social media to counter the 'false propaganda' being unleashed by a section in the country against the party.

A 'calculated false campaign' was going on against the Congress party at the national level and this should be countered, he said.
