twitter Mangaluru, Oct 11, 2015: As per reports, City police have registered an FIR against operators of two Twitter accounts for posting obscene photos and pornography clips. An FIR was claimed to be registered by Mangaluru South Police based on a complaint lodged by social worker Santhosh Sumantha of Valencia. In his complaint, Santhosh said he found a few children of his locality sharing obscene photos and videos from Twitter using their mobile phones.

 

It is a shocking that children are sharing pornographic content and it will affect them negatively. There are more than one lakh such Twitter accounts that share such obscene content. Hence, suitable action should be taken against those who have shared obscene content on Twitter. 

Police it is said have registered the case under Section 67(B) of the IT Act, 2000 and Sections 14 and 15 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012 against unidentified operators of two Twitter accounts that had posted pornography content. Not being able to find the operators of the Twitter accounts, the city police have reportedly forwarded the details of the case to the cyber crime cell in Bengaluru.

Sumantha also sought removal of all such Twitter accounts with the help of Childline Mangaluru, Prajna Counselling Centre and activists.

Childline Mangaluru director Renni D’Souza has stated that there are several Twitter and other social media accounts that share pornographic content. A detailed investigation has been asked for and also have urged police to take initiatives to deactivate such social media accounts. We will also write to the Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, the Human Rights Commission and the home department, Childline Mangaluru director D’Souza said.
