Cyber crimes are a new class of crimes to India rapidly expanding due to extensive use of Internet. Dishonest and greedy people take advantage of easy and free access to Internet and perform any acts to satisfy their needs. The need could be physiological or psychological in nature.2 Online shopping and wide use of “social media” are root cause of cyber crimes. Much awareness created for cyber crimes and users were educated. But still people do not complain it to authorities. Even somebody do it then also police or crime branch unable to clear such complains in reasonable time period. Delay in justice will lead to NO registration of complain. This is not healthy situation in free democratic INDIA.
