Jharkhand Police’s Pratibimb app to reveal the location of cybercriminals

Ranchi:  The Pratibimb app will reveal the geographical location of mobile numbers used in cyber fraud across the country. Jharkhand Police has prepared this website named Reflection. By implementing this, the geographical location of all the mobile numbers which have been used in cybercrimes across the country can be seen.

This data will appear on the map of India of the entire country. Due to this the physical or geographical location of mobile numbers being used by criminals in any state will be visible. Rajasthan ranks first in terms of cybercrime. Whereas Jharkhand is at second place in the country.

In the last four and a half years (from 2019 to July 2023), 5350 cases of cybercrime have been reported in Jharkhand. Of these, 1432 cases have been registered only in the capital Ranchi. Apart from this, 496 cases have been registered in Dhanbad, 405 in Deoghar, 384 in Jamshedpur and 348 in Hazaribagh. Cybercrime police stations will be formed in eight districts of Jharkhand. This includes Bokaro, Ramgarh, Chaibasa, Ranchi, Latehar, Hazaribagh, Dumka and Seraikela districts.
