Registering a Cyber Crime complaint is not Rocket Science.
The definition of cyber crime is pretty hard to cop up with today’s age, where the data over the internet is spreading like wildfire and snowballing into an enormous avalanche. But the basic definition of cyber crime is any illegal activity that uses a computer as its primary means of commission.
The rate of cyber crime in India is on the increase too but the figures might alarm you more.

Currently, the cyber crimes in India are nearly around 1,49,254 and it may likely cross the figure of 3,00,000 by 2015 growing at a compounded annual growth rate i.e. (CAGR) of about 107 percent. As per the findings, monthly nearly 12,456 cases registered in India.
