Goodman (1997) has pointed out that several institutional factors de-motivate the police departments to pursue cyber crime cases. Their observations stand true for women victims of cyber crime. Zero definition and less perception of cyber crime against women push the victim as well as the police to hollowness as to how to deal with the case and proceed further. It becomes exceptionally hard for the police to further investigate when the complaint contains a conglomeration of offences targeting women which have no proper legal terminology either to suit the offline or the online crimes.
