Interpol will help Nepal's Tribuvan International Airport (TIA) upgrade its security system in order to track internationally wanted criminals.

The global police agency said it will connect its database link to TIA, helping security personnel and officials at the airport's immigration department access computerised data to detect criminals travelling by air.

As part of Interpol's plan to expand services in Nepal, a team is conducting a study on TIA's security arrangements and its immigration department.

The team is preparing a draft report on the IT architecture needed to implement the plan, according to Xinhua news agency.
