With child abuse finding new forms and channels through mobile and digital technologies, victims of such cyber crimes can now lodge their complaints at National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR)'s enhanced online platform 'POCSO e-box'.

"Considering the growing menace of cyber crimes targeting children, POCSO e-box has been enhanced to handle cyber bullying, cyber stalking, morphing of images and child pornography," NCPCR said in a statement on Friday.

Such crimes can be reported by pressing the 'e-box' button available at the commission's website. Complaints can be sent to the e-mail address of pocsoebox -- ncpcr@gov.in or on the mobile number 9868235077.

"In India, about 134 million children have access to mobile phones. While this provides opportunities for accessing useful material for learning purposes, lack of digital literacy and online safety measures expose children to hazards of cyber crime," the statement said.

It informed that the 'POCSO e-box' is an easy and direct medium for reporting of child sexual abuse under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012. The platform was launched by Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi in 2016.
