Indore (Madhya Pradesh): As cyber crimes are rising across the country, mayor Pushyamitra Bhargav here on Monday said that if Indore wanted to remain safe from such crimes, then awareness is the way forward.

“To make our city safe from cyber crimes, we need to create awareness among the citizens,” he said while addressing a Cyber Mitra seminar organised at city bus office.

Bhargav said that Cyber Mitra programme will be implemented in the city as an initiative to make it safe from cyber crime. The mayor said that the volunteers will have to reach out to the people and sensitize them about cyber crimes.

“Indore is known from many firsts. We should also become safest city against cyber crimes,” he said.
