Bhopal, Jan 19 (UNI) Cyber crime has emerged as a serious issue to be dealt with and judiciary, police and law makers should not adopt a lax attitude towards it.

Inspector General of Police Shailendra Srivastava, while chairing a session on cyber crime on the second day of the 31st Conference of the Akhil Bharatiya Apradh Vigyan, said the conference aimed at making police, government and judiciary aware about cyber crime-related issues.

More than 70 research papers were presented on cyber crime during various sessions.

Earlier, US-based crime expert Professor Keith Harris presented his research on crime mapping. He showed the manner in which a criminal targets areas in his neighbourhood.

He pointed out that crime mapping failed several times because criminals used fast-moving vehicles. The procedure helped when similar types of crimes happened regularly.

New Delhi-based NICEF Professor B N Chattoraj said laws were not implemented as intended. For instance, the ban on smoking in public places in New Delhi was implemented on poor people whereas influential people made its mockery.

Crime expert Ved Pal Singh and Sabal presented research paper on the formulating new legal system to check cyber crime. The paper focussed on general legal procedures and new techniques such as digital signatures, encryption technique and e-trade.

South Africa's Stephen Vanzil presented a paper on sexual crime and Internet. His research was mainly focussed on South Africa.

Madhya Pradesh High Court Chief Justice A K Patnaik would be the chief guest on the last day of the conference tomorrow. He would present 'Kumarappa-reckless' award to former IPS officer Kiran Bedi.
