In the 21st century, ‘Internet’ is our mantra for survival, more so at a time when our country is progressing towards the motto of “Digital India”. The increase in the number of internet users has catalysed the darker side of internet usage. This ‘darker side’ is associated with crimes that the cyber space facilitates and harbours.
