Kerala police crack down on paedophiles sharing child pornography over dark net

Earlier, the Kerala Police had in June this year, teamed up with the Interpol to crack down on paedophiles sharing child pornography. 30 people involved in circulating child pornography through a WhatsApp group had been identified and three persons, including the group administrator, were arrested in connection with the case.

Last year too, cases had been registered by the Kerala police against as many as 58 people for sharing child pornography with others through various social media platforms.

The crackdown was a part of operation ‘P-hunt’ (paedophile hunt) initiated by Cyberdome, a wing of the Kerala Police on June 11, 2019, wherein Kerala police, to curb the menace of cybercrime involving sexual attacks on children, joined hands with the Interpol, Crimes against Children Unit and the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children.
