‘Operation Blackface’ is state cyber cell’s call to action against paedophilia

In the last eight months, 1,680 social media posts and internet uploads of child pornography-related material originating in Maharashtra have been brought to the attention of the cyber crime department of the Maharashtra police.

According to the Maharashtra government’s superintendent of police (cyber crime) Balsingh Rajput, the data on child pornography-related material was provided by social media and electronic service providers to the US-based National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (NICMEC), which shared it with the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) under a collaboration. The Maharashtra police, in turn, have shared the details with the district Superintendents of Police (SP) for further action.
