New Delhi: With terror-related cyber crimes having international links, Kerala on Monday asked the Centre to develop protocols with countries having a large Indian population for quick exchange of information.

It also suggested that states should develop special wings to keep a tab on their residents indulging in suspicious activities in other states as well as those coming from outside.

Addressing the Chief Ministers' Conference on Internal Security on behalf of Kerala Chief Minister VS Achutanandan, Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said increasing anti- national elements were using digital technology and most of the terror-related cyber crimes have an international link.

"But complications arising from international law prevent both effective, immediate responses as well as the tracing of original source. An act which is a crime here may not be a crime abroad.

"It is very much necessary that, at least in terror- related crimes, protocols are developed in international community and with countries having large Indian population about immediate exchange of information on such crimes at the request of state police forces," he said.
