Patna. To curb cybercrime, the Department of Telecom has analyzed the faces of more than 87 crore SIM users across the country, including about seven crore people in Bihar and Jharkhand. This analysis has been done using artificial intelligence and facial recognition powered solution in collaboration with the Center for Development of Advanced Computing. During this, it was found that many people have taken many SIM cards on the basis of fake identity cards.
18 sim cards found with one person
A person has got 18 sim cards, which were taken by fake identity cards. Surprisingly, the photo is the same in all the identity cards given by that person, but the names are different. In some photos, he has kept a beard, while in others he is seen without a beard. To stop this fraud, more than 2.30 lakh mobile phone numbers were blocked in Bihar and Jharkhand in the month of April only this year. During the investigation, most of the cases have come up for presenting wrong photographs. This action is being taken on the basis of National Cyber Crime Reporting.
