Addressing on the occasion, Sucharita said the cyber criminals are targeting the young girls, students and women and robbing the personal data for misuse.

She cautioned the people to be vigilant with the criminals, who send friend requests on face book and other social media.

She said the objective of conducting the workshop is to create awareness on the cybercrimes among women and girls.
