Women should not upload their photographs on platforms such as and Whatsapp as they could be misused, a senior police officer cautioned today.

"Changing social scenario invites newer offences. In future, will evolve into cyber and there also might be cyber wars between nations," Southern Zone IG S Murugan said.



"In the world nothing is deletable. Once we insert the details they can't be deleted. So women should not use their pictures for profiles in as it is being misused (by some) nowadays," he said, adding, 'unlawful acts' using electronic devices were on the rise.

Speaking at a seminar in the St.Xaviers College, Palayamkottai here titled "Cyber Crimes and Issues," Murugan said having fake IDs and hacking of websites among others were "punishable offences."
