Kerala launches crackdown on child porn, student among 28 arrested

Kerala is seeing many cases of repeat offences where the usual suspects, after release, return to crime better prepared, police sources said

Kerala Police has launched a major crackdown against child porn that is being produced and distributed in the state. The cops have been making a strong effort to eradicate this menace, which is said to be functioning unhindered in the south Indian state.

During the raid, 28 people including a young student were arrested while 370 cases have been registered and 420 pieces of equipment seized in the latest police action in the case.

Cyberdome of the Kerala Police is conducting the search-and-arrest raids under the name Operation P-hunt. The police raided 477 locations simultaneously across the state.

The police team found that the arrested were circulating pictures of young children in the age range of 5 to 16 years. The pictures were of children living in the vicinity of the suspects.

The cases registered include that against a juvenile. Police arrested this 17-year-old boy for the third time in such a case. The racket includes IT professionals and those engaged in the business of mobile phones.

Thanks to the hyperactive CCSE cell and due to the arrests and registration of cases, the perverse nature of a large section of internet users in Kerala is getting exposed. But in many cases, these crimes are related to mental addictions that require treatment. In the absence thereof, there are trends of repeat offences by the usual suspects. They come back every time better prepared, with better tools of anonymity. After every two months, “we again see the going up and a spike in such cases against children,” an officer said.

Kerala Police had conducted a similar operation in December last year, involving many cases and arrests. So far, close to 500 people have been arrested under Operation P-hunt.

The state police chief had constituted the “CCSE (Counter Child Sexual Exploitation) Unit for Kerala Police” with special emphasis on preventing online child exploitation and child pornography on the net.

This unit has become fully functional from January 2019 onwards and works full time on preventing and detecting online crimes against children.

It should be noted that as per the current law, viewing, distributing or storing of any child pornographic content is a criminal offense can result in, up to 5 years imprisonment and up to Rs 10 lakh fine.
