India Likely to Launch Sex Offender Data Base Next Month

[sputniknews.com – 8/31/18]

The registry is aimed at helping law enforcement agencies to identify repeat offenders while making people aware of those involved in crimes that are sexual in nature, however, human rights activists are concerned the draconian step might do more harm than good.

New Delhi (Sputnik) — With demands to ensure justice for sex offense victims growing louder every passing day, the government of India has decided to adopt a sex offender database. The database would store the profile and personal details of convicted offenders and also those accused of such offenses. Media reports have also suggested that minors accused of such crimes may also be included in the database.

“The national registry of crimes against women will be launched next month. The records are being sourced from the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems (CCTNS),” a senior Union Home Ministry official said.

According to a recent report by the Indian Home Ministry, private contractors will develop the platform, maintain the data’s confidentiality, while officials from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) will maintain the registry itself.

Some 450,000 individuals are already listed on the registry, and another 35,000 names are expected to be added this year, the home ministry report reads.

Mugshots.com and related “extortion” websites declare themselves a “news organization” and they “write thousands of articles a year”, which of course is nothing more than republishing data scraped from various databases. They don’t care if someone is convicted or not, but rather just accused by the justice system. On a side note, sex offender “mugshots” don’t fall into the same legal definition as “mugshots” as far as I can tell, because they are not taken at booking, but rather as a part of civil registration.
