Mastering the techniques of the dark web
Rajveer Kant is a final year student of Computer Science. He has mastered the techniques of the dark web. Kant used a mailface account. At present it has only 500 users in the country. Only 150 of them are active on it. Search engines cannot index it. Dark web is considered very dangerous. Major cyber crimes are committed in this manner. The police tracked the surfing activities of all of them.
exposed by mistake
Kant was constantly changing his IP address. IP address varies from one country to another, so it is difficult to trace it. But the police had their eyes on the cyber world. He made a mistake and was caught. While changing the IP address, he gave information about his IP address and it was detected the very next moment. Mumbai Police arrested him.
