India has taken steps such as;
1. Signing MLATs - Mutual legal assistance treaties with neighbours to ensure criminals are brought to trial irrespective of jurisdiction.
2. Extradition treaties signed between india and its neighbours helps transfer of belligerent non-state actors to respective authorities, which help curb rebellion and insurgency at initial stages.
