India has joined Interpol’s international child sexual exploitation (ICSE) database which will allow it to draw links between victims, abusers, and crime scenes using audio-visual data. The CBI, which is India’s nodal agency for Interpol matters, joined the database making India the 68th country to connect to it, according to a statement from Interpol.
- An intelligence and investigative tool, the database allows specialized investigators to share information on cases of child sexual abuse.
- Through the image and video comparison software, the investigators can nail down the criminals by identifying victims and places of crime.
- The database avoids duplication of effort and saves precious time by letting investigators know whether a series of images has already been discovered or identified in another country, or whether it has similar features to other images.
