The head coach of Goa's state swimming team, sacked after a video of him sexually abusing a teenage swimmer sent shockwaves on social media, has been arrested, the police said today. Goa Swimming Coach: A video of a swimming coach from Bengal sexually abusing a teenaged swimmer, also from the state, in a room in Goa and the swimmer's testament has sent shockwaves on social media and the country's sports world.

One unforeseen consequence of the rise of the internet has been an explosion in the illicit trade of child sexual abuse images and videos. Child sexual abuse material legally known as child pornography refers to any content that depicts sexually explicit activities involving a child. Visual depictions include photographs, videos, digital or computer generated images indistinguishable from an actual minor.
Our International Child Sexual Exploitation ICSE image and video database is an intelligence and investigative tool, which allows specialized investigators to share data on cases of child sexual abuse. Using image and video comparison software, investigators are instantly able to make connections between victims, abusers and places. The database avoids duplication of effort and saves precious time by letting investigators know whether a series of images has already been discovered or identified in another country, or whether it has similar features to other images.
At CEOP we have seen an increase in cases of sexual abuse which takes place solely online. In these cases the children involved never meet the offender face to face and all of the abuse takes place over the internet - via images, webcam or live streaming. Though the ways they do it vary, the basic tactic used by offenders is to trick or persuade a young person to share a sexual image, strip or perform sexual acts on webcam or live streaming platforms.
