Begaluru Police Station Has Shut Down As It Can't Receive More Than 9,999 Cases

On November 23, the station, which is situated in the police commissionerate campus in Bengaluru City received the last complaint.

There only one cyber-crime station in Bengaluru, India, and it’s in charge of a lot of cases, but that seems impossible now. The station has to shut down. The reason is that it feared to get the 10,000th case this year while its system is designed to register up-to four-digit cases only.

So, for the first time, a Karnataka-base police station has to stop receiving complaints due to this problem.

On November 23, the station, which is situated in the police commissionerate campus in Bengaluru City received the last complaint. So far, there have been 9,970 cases registered at this station within 2019. Every day, it gets 30 complaints on average and feared that November 24 would witness it hit the 10,000th mark. A note is pasted on the station’s doors saying that it has shut down because of technical issues, and those who came to file complaints were caught off guard.

Additionally, the note says that people can file their complaints at other local police stations or to the website www.cybercrime.gov.inportal.

According to a senior officer, the officials at the station are working on as well as investigating the registered complaints. Kuldeep Kumar Jain, DCP (crime-1) told Times of India that as the portal they used for generating FIR didn’t take numbers with five digits, they had stopped receiving complaints in their cyber-crime police station. For other stations, they can also register cases till 9999 only, not any further. He added that Karnataka’s cyber-crime police station í the only one to have registered such a large number of cases.

However, the station doesn’t seem to rush into fixing the problem, which may happen again. Ironically, it has recently carried out a hackathon aiming at creating technical solutions for cracking crime.

Starting January 1, the police station will begin to register complaints again.
