India’s Central Bureau of Investigation has joined Interpol’s International Child Sexual Exploitation (ICSE) initiative.

International Child Sexual Exploitation database

  • The ICSE database uses video and image comparison to analyze the Child Sex Exploitation Material (CSEM) and make connections between the victims, abusers, and places.
  • The database avoids duplication of effort and saves precious time by letting investigators know whether a series of images have already been discovered or identified in another country, or whether it has similar features to other images.
  • The image and video databases are intelligence and investigative tool, which allows specialized investigators to share various data on cases of child sexual abuse.
  • It helps victim identification specialists worldwide analyze and compare child sexual abuse images.

INTERPOL’s Child Sexual Exploitation database holds more than 2.7 million images and videos that have helped identify 23,564 victims worldwide.

Significance for India

  • From 2017 to 2020 India has reported over 24 lakh instances of online child sexual abuse with 80% of victims being girls below the age of 14 years.
  • More than 60% of the unidentified victims were prepubescent, including infants and toddlers.
  • Around 65% of unidentified victims were mostly girls, but severe abuse images were more likely to have boys.
  • It will allow India to collaborate with investigators in other countries for detecting child sexual abuse online and identifying abusers, victims, and crime scenes from audio-visual clips using specialized software.

India is the 68th country to have access to this database and software.


  • Its full form is International Criminal Police Organization.
  • It is the world’s largest international police organization with 195 member countries and is headquartered in Lyon, France.
  • Each member country hosts an Interpol National Central Bureau that connects their national law enforcement to it and in India, the CBI is that nodal agency.
