The National Police Academy of India launched a cryptocurrency course for senior Indian police officers.
The course objectives include the study of the functional and legal aspects of cryptocurrencies, as well as the investigation of cases involving cryptoactive assets. Indian police continue to disclose regularly
cryptocurrency fraud schemes while the government is discussing
regulatory framework for cryptocurrency.
A leading Indian police training academy, the Sardar Vallabhbai Patel National Police Academy (SVP NPA), announced a course on cryptocurrency for training the Indian Police Service (IPS). The course entitled “Investigation of cases related to cryptocurrency” is scheduled for 5 and 6 September.
According to the Academy announcement, the course has four goals. In addition to “putting cryptocurrencies and blockchains into operation”, employees will study “the legal aspects of cryptocurrencies, crimes committed using cryptocurrencies, [и] investigation of cases related to cryptocurrencies. “
“Trained officers will be appointed assistants to the police superintendent in their states, under whose leadership other police units will work,” the statement said.
Recall that in February of this year, the Government of India opened
cryptocurrency forensic laboratory. In general, the Indian police quite often disclose cases related to cryptocurrencies. Recently, the police uncovered
cryptocurrency fraud involving the organizer of the pyramid BitConnect. And earlier this year in India was arrested
the organizer of the fraudulent cryptocurrency scheme for $ 70 million.
