CYBER terrorism and the impact of social media on the society will be discussed in detail by top police officers at a three-day conference that will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in early December.

Police officers of the rank of DGP and IGP from all States and Central police organisations will deliberate on cyber terrorism, the impact of social media on the society, cross-border terrorism, radicalisation of youths besides a host of other issues during the meet to be held at the BSF academy in Tekanpur, Madhya Pradesh, from December 1-3.

While the Prime Minister is expected to speak on new-age crime like cyber terrorism and radicalisation of youths, Home Minister Rajnath Singh will give an assessment on the internal security situation and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval will talk about cross-border terrorism, a Home Ministry official said.

About 250 senior police officers are expected to attend the conclave which will discuss issues such as the security situation in the major combat theatres of Jammu and Kashmir, Left Wing Extremism (LWE) and the North-East. Issues of curbing black money and narcotics in the wake of demonetisation were also expected to be on the agenda, the official said.
