When it comes to the subject of cybercrime, Bangladesh left behind everyone, women are the soft targets of cybercrime .women are commonly victimized compared to men, being a conservative cultural country girls are always blamed for everything, whatever the situation. Though they are considered as weakest gender and it is very easy to harm their dignity because of the active vulgar mentality of the society through many unpleasant ways. According to the cyber security and crime division of DMP, 70% of cyber victims are women in our country. As per the information based on the data of cyber tribunal, around 70% women who face cyber harassment in our country are of 15-25 age range, among the allegations and complaints hacking ID’s covered 20% of the cases, fake ID’s covered 20% of the cases, defamation cases 18% and online pornography 14 %. (Dhaka Tribune, 24th September, 2019) Your tub is an auxiliary way to persecute women and to speak of it by utilizing this process statistically, deflection and disfigurement pointed at diminishing women befall at an outrageous level and percentage.
For the years practices, prima facie that as we are living in a patronizing society where they presumed women as a marketable object to earn money. It has seen that several surveys report 70% of YouTube videos made up by one’s and 40% of the videos are targeted women in our country. Monitoring Technologies, having a conversation with victims, examine Facebook and you tub reports. (Levin, 2013) In 2014, a girl named Rabeya, she was living with her parents in Sylhet, her parents were strict, while she came to introduced with the blessing of the internet, she found a new world where she had an ingress anything, get to know people, make friends.
No one can be there to direct her what to or not to do. She evolved a relationship with man, who professed to be a banker in Dhaka than she had an explicit chat with that man and they had exchanged so many intimate experiences, after a while, he forced her to send him some nudes picture of her, when she refused to do so, he started to blackmailing her and said he will call her parents. She was mentally tortured and unable to share this with anybody.
BTRC is not that effective and they don’t have the professional capacity to reduce the rate of cybercrime. Once a victim called Sadia after, she had informed BTRC about her fake account, someone has opened her fake account, but they have failed to do something about the issue, that account is still on the internet. To diminish the statistic of cybercrime Bangladesh police and the cyber wing should have to work more effectively, without formulating new laws and regulations, originate new policies it is a high time to execute it and create a landmark history by implementing laws.
