This perpetual crime web needs to be monitored and unearth through joint efforts starting from the origin of the victim through its transit route to the end of his final journey. So, it will be fruitless and a futile attempt if a coordination gap exists between the departments within a country or internationally agencies. Therefore, following departments play their respective roles with well-developed coordination and cooperation.
