As the Government plans to conduct trainings for law enforcement on cyber and forensic technologies, WazirX delivered a training session to Bhopal Cyber cell.
One of India’s largest crypto exchanges, WazirX has collaborated with Bhopal Cyber Crime Cell.
It conducted a day-long training program for the department, reported The Pioneer. The program training was conducted by Aritra Sarkhel, Director, WazirX, and Anuj Chaudhary, Senior Blockchain & Crypto Analyst, WazirX. More than 30 officers attended it including Sachin Atulkar, the Police Commissioner of Bhopal.
Lauding the training module, Mr. Sachin Atulkar, Police Commissioner, Bhopal, said,
“We appreciate the initiative of WazirX to impart commendable training sessions for our officers. The learning for this session will certainly help our able officials to unearth crypto scam-related cases efficiently. We would look forward to more of such sessions from the crypto experts, which will be a win-win for the public-private partnership in this segment.”Sachin Atulkar, Police Commissioner, Bhopal
WazirX has devised a training module for the law enforcement community, pan-India. The training includes knowledge of the basics of the blockchain, on-chain analysis to flag off suspicious trading activities as per regulatory frameworks, and education on using tools that can prevent such crimes and also identify fraudulent and fair transactions.
In recent weeks the spurt in crypto crime being busted shows Indian law enforcement agencies’ commitment to cracking down on such crimes. On Monday, during a discussion in the Lok Sabha, the Minister of Finance, State, Mr. Pankaj Chaudhary revealed that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs (CBIC) have unearthed the payment of approx. Rs. 2.2 crore through crypto-currency in 11 cases linked to drug trafficking.
Government is also conducting training for the field officers on cyber and forensic technologies.
Maybe this year, crypto scams and crimes will reduce in India.
