An investigation conducted by the German police in a case of child pornography has blown the lid off a global paedophilia racket comprising citizens of several countries, including India. The CBI has registered an FIR against seven Indian men from different states who were allegedly part of this racket. The accused were involved in transmitting material depicting children in sexually explicit acts via electronic form. This amounts to a cognisable offence under Section 67 of the Information Technology Act. Hence an FIR was registered and legal action is being taken.
