India's first police station to exclusively handle cybercrimes such as computer hacking, data damage and Internet fraud will start work in Bangalore on September 15, police said on Friday. The station, which would cover the state of Karnataka, was launched on Thursday, a senior police official told Reuters.

    The station, which would cover crimes under India's information technology law passed last year, was aimed at taking quick action on solving cybercrimes, taking the burden from local police.

    Local police stations would continue to register cyberspace crimes and would also carry out searches.
