What to do if you get pornographic videos of children, Supreme Court with warning

videos-


NEW DELHI: Supreme Court's directive to delete obscene videos involving children as soon as they are received. The court warned that legal action will be taken otherwise. The recommendation came from a bench headed by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud.

The court observed that while it may not be a crime for a child to watch a pornographic video, the use of children in pornographic videos is a crime and a matter of grave concern. The bench, headed by the Chief Justice, made the important observation while hearing a plea against the Madras High Court ruling that downloading and storing obscene videos involving children is not an offence. The Supreme Court adjourned the petition for judgment.

The Madras High Court ruled that downloading and viewing obscene videos involving children is not an offence under the POCSO Act and the IT Act. The Madras High Court had ruled that only downloading obscene videos involving children and forwarding them to someone else is an offense under Section 67B of the IT Act.
