"An exclusive `Cyber Crimes Police station` will be set
up at the Central Crime Station (CCS)-- a wing of Hyderabad
City Police soon. It will register complaints and investigate
cases pertaining to cyber crimes," Hyderabad City Commissioner
of Police A K Khan told reporters here.

He said automated traffic signals and a vehicle (with
speed cameras) to monitor and detect over speeding vehicles

Police station`, a senior police official told PTI, that as of

obscene e-mails, source code theft, credit card and Nigerian
