Mumbai: Mumbai police have detained a man for uploading child pornography content on Facebook after they received information about his mobile number, email ID, and IP address.

The man was detained by the cyber cell of Mumbai police at Bandra, and they are gathering electronic evidence from him.

Cyber Cell had last week registered four cases related to Child Pornography uploaded on Social media; after that, police launched a manhunt to trace the culprits involved in this heinous crime.

According to the police, in the first case, they had come across a 60-second video clip in which an unknown adult was seen involved in the sexual exploitation of a minor child. The said clip was uploaded on Facebook in June 2020, and the police have also received information about the mobile number, email ID, and IP address of the person who uploaded the clip.

In the second case, a video of 55 seconds was uploaded on Instagram in June 2020, in which an unknown adult woman was seen involved in the sexual exploitation of a minor child.

During the investigation, police have received information about the mobile number and IP address of the person who uploaded the clip.

In the third case, the police came across a 60-second clip in which an unknown adult woman was seen involved in the sexual exploitation of a minor child.

The said clip was uploaded on Instagram in May 2020, and the police have information about the mobile number, Instagram user ID name, and IP address of the person who uploaded the clip.

The fourth case that the police came across was a 1.55-minute video clip in which an unknown adult male was seen exploiting a minor girl.

The said clip was uploaded on Facebook in May 2020, and the police have also received information about the mobile number and IP address of the person who uploaded the clip.

The police had registered the cases on July 14 under Section 67B (punishment for publishing or transmitting material depicting children in sexually explicit acts, etc., in electronic form) of the Information Technology Act.

In order to curb the menace of sharing child sexual abuse material online, the Maharashtra Cyber Department initiated Operation Blackface in December 2019.

Meanwhile, Ulhasnagar police in neighbouring Thane district have arrested a youth for editing girls' Instagram photos into pornographic content.
