DGPs and senior police officials from Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, New Delhi and Rajasthan participated in the conference. Officials from Income Tax, National Crime Records Bureau, National Investigation Agency, enforcement directorate, CBI, ministry of home affairs and banks were also present. Parveer Ranjan, DGP, UT, said challenges in dealing with cyber frauds and training of cops to handle such cases were discussed.

The court emphasized that a review petition has a limited purpose and cannot be used as an appeal in disguise.
