Dr. Ananth Prabhu was introduced by Mrs. Nisha Albuquerque, the Joint Secretary of PTA. The audience paid rapt attention as he began to speak, such was the topic as he is closely related to the social media and cyber crime units.
He talked about several incidents of crimes through the mobile phone and how these could be prevented. He narrated several cases which he had solved and held the audience spellbound. The session was definitely an eye-opener and very useful, especially as he also gave the preventive measures that one can take to safeguard oneself.
