India joined Interpol’s International Child Sexual Exploitation Database (ICSE). This will make it possible to establish links between victims, perpetrators and crime scenes using audiovisual data. The CBI, the Indian node agency for Interpol affairs, joined the database, making India the 68th country to join it, according to an Interpol statement.
- As an information and investigative tool, the database allows specialized investigators to exchange information on cases of child sexual abuse.
- The investigators can use the image and video comparison software to track down the perpetrators by identifying victims and crime scenes.
- The database avoids duplication and saves investigators valuable time by letting investigators know if an image series has already been discovered or identified in another country, or if it shares characteristics similar to other images.
Important findings for all selection tests:
- Interpol Headquarters: Lyons, France;
- Interpol President: Ahmed Naser Al-Raisi;
- Interpol founded: September 7, 1923, Vienna, Austria.
