Cabinet okays Indo-US MoU on missing children

New Delhi, Feb 28 : The Union Cabinet on Thursday approved the Memorandum of Understanding between India and the USA to access tipline reports on Missing and Exploited Children.

The MoU has been signed between the National Crime Record Bureau (NCRB), India and the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), USA, said Union Minister Arun Jaitley briefing reporters after the meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The MoU will provide access to more than one lakh tipline reports available with NCMEC, USA and enable law enforcement agencies in India.

It will pave the way for setting up of an innovative mechanism for sharing information about child pornography and child sexual abuse material and taking legal action against offenders. It will further enable the law enforcement agencies to remove child pornography and child sexual abuse material from cyber space, thereby enhance human dignity. (UNI)
