India’s First Hotline to Report Child Pornography Launches Next Week

Hotline

India’s first ever hotline to limit sexual abuse of children through the internet is set to launch early next week. This hotline also removes child abusive, pornographic content on the internet. Aaarambh, a network of individuals and organizations who work on child protection, took the initiative and collaborated with a UK-based Internet Watch Foundation.

IWF, an industry watch dog, is the most successful hotline in the world to remove child pornography.The hotline will be hosted on aarambhindia.org in India and enables users to report abuse about child sexual videos in an anonymous and safe environment.

Initially, the hotline will be in Hindi and English, and will be available in 22 regional languages in future.The purpose of hotline serves three – to trace the perpetrator and report him to the law enforcement agencies of his country, blocks and eventually removes offensive content, to reach out to the child victim and rehabilitate him/her as and when required.

A user can report the URL to the hotline once if he or she comes across a video or an image showing sexual abuse of children on the internet. A complaint filed on the Hotline remains secret and is accessed by a team of IWF professionals based in the UK.

This team selects the offensive URL and adds it to block-list thus its trouble making in accessing the content further until it has been removed. Once after the content is deleted, a unique identification number is assigned to ensure that the content cannot be uploaded in the future.

“According to NCRB data, sexual offenses online are second only to illegal gain and fraud in cyber crimes. Last year, around 96 cases were reported under sections concerning pornography and children. The year before, the number was just 40. This shows a 140 percent increase.

This despite the fact that internet penetration is only 20 percent and the quality of the internet connection isn’t optimum either. As internet connectivity improves, the issue is bound to see a staggering rise if preventive measures are not put in place,” says Siddharth Pillai, communications manager and co-director of Aarambh Initiative.

This tool also helps in filling the gap while police teams often face while dealing with cyber crimes. The nature of offenses globally deals where a child from one country could be a victim, where perpetrator would be from another country.

As per law, using a child for sexual gratification in any form of social media can be sent to jail at least for more than 5 years. If in case the videos or images contain sexual assault, there are chances even for a life incarceration.

Now the traditional way of financial transactions like credit and debit cards are coming closer to expire. UK based start-up company developed a new technology ‘FingoPay.’ This new technology enables users to shop and make payments just by scanning finger veins.

This new automation builds a unique map for each individual by using a biometric reader to scan the veins of a shopper’s finger. By connecting the pattern with a bank account or credit card will allow the users to make payments by simply placing their finger in a pocket-sized scanner. Former music industry executive Nick Dryden founded the company Sthaler, which developed this ‘FingoPay,’ and announced that test for the technology would begin at a London nightclub next month.

The technology will help to reduce the waiting times at bars in either way, by suggesting the drinks based upon their previous order on their patron, and by cutting down cash and credit cards. “McDonald’s is experimenting with a pilot of the technology, and that Sthaler is also planning a project with Co-op’s food stores.” Said, Mr Dryden.

Vein scanners built by Hitachi are being already used in cash machines and identifying customers in Japan.
