Child pornography case: Delhi High Court wants NCRB to find source of upload

The Delhi High Court while hearing a case related to child pornography has directed the police agencies to forward sexually explicit material relating to the petitioner to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) to identify the persons who are re-uploading the offensive content in India.

A single-Judge bench led by Justice Vibhu Bakhru was hearing a petition by a 24-year-old woman whose photographs which had been taken when she was a minor had been uploaded on the internet by her boyfriend.

After becoming aware that the accused had placed her photographs on the net, the petitioner filed a complaint against the accused before the Special Cell, Cyber Crime Department, Delhi Police and also sent notices to the Social media platforms for removal of the URL / webpages, however no caution was taken by the respondents after which the petitioner had to approach the High Court.

Advocate Anurag Ahluwalia, learned counsel appearing for Government of India submitted that NCRB acts as a nodal agency for technical and operational functions of on-line Cyber Reporting.
