Sapkota said that the students were imparted knowledge on different issues that have taken place lately with the misuse of internet.
In the training, the students were informed about fake news, misinformation, privacy, hate speech, online child abuse, cyber bullying, online fraud and other related aspects.
Likewise, trainer of Governance International Nepal (GIN) Sanjeev Ghimire said that the society should be aware to the use of internet since everyone has become a part of the digital world willingly or unwillingly.
“Everyone’s access has increased to online business, online banking system, social networking sites, e-commerce and e-payment. Everyone has accessibility to the digital world. But, people have been pushed to different troubles for its misuse,” Ghimire viewed.
