India has asked the Interpol to come up with special notices for terror suspects in a bid to distinguish from the normal red corner notices. The issue was raised by India at the 81st Interpol General Assembly held at Rome and attended by 190 member countries.
The CBI, which acts as the nodal agency in India, proposed that Interpol should come up with colour other than red to identify terrorists and issue notices against them.
CBI sources said a proposal on this issue is being considered and a decision will be taken after all nations agree to it. Presently, the Interpol issues notices in blue, yellow, orange, green, purple and black colours for fugitives all over the world. Red notices also mean that the person should be arrested immediately with a view to extradite him.
India is among the country which has the maximum number of red notices pending against terror suspects. According to CBI, nearly 670 Interpol notices of various kinds are pending, of which 577 are red notices. This also includes accused involved in murders, drugs, organised crime, frauds and cheating. "The red notices are issued by Interpol only after the alleged offense in which an accused person is booked has dual criminality," said a senior CBI official.
Dual criminality means that apart from India, the offence should also be recognised in another country for a red notice to be valid.
