Abstract

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. The anonymity of the internet has impelled the offenders, strangers and friends alike, to trap people into a web of online victimization. Against this backdrop, the author has attempted to analyse the nature of victimization on the internet in relation to different theories, and thereafter, bring to forefront the issues and challenges that our legislative regime faces in reference to cyber offending.
