Por­tal for com­plaints on sex abuse videos: SC seeks re­port

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

The Supreme Court on Mon­day di­rected the Cen­tre to file a com­pre­hen­sive and de­tailed sta­tus re­port about the progress of an on­line cy­ber crime re­port­ing por­tal to block videos of sex­ual of­fences on so­cial sites.

A bench of Jus­tices Madan B Lokur and U U Lalit said it would be in the in­ter­est of all con­cerned, if a cen­tral re­port­ing mech­a­nism was set up to stop cy­ber crimes.

“We would like to have a com­pre­hen­sive and de­tailed sta­tus re­port from the Min­istry of Home Af­fairs in­form­ing us about the progress made, keep­ing in view the fact that there is a road map al­ready in­di­cated in the af­fi­davit dated De­cem­ber 1, 2015 and other sub­se­quent af­fi­davits. The sta­tus re­port will deal with all these is­sues in a com­pre­hen­sive man­ner,” the bench said. The Cen­tre in­formed the top court that the launch of the beta ver­sion of this por­tal was ex­pected in the last week of April.

“It is also stated that con­nec­tiv­ity of the por­tal has been tested with Ma­ha­rash­tra, Ker­ala, UP and Chandi­garh. The process is un­der­way to es­tab­lish con­nec­tiv­ity with all other States/UTs and ef­forts have been made to in­te­grate as many States as pos­si­ble be­fore the launch date.”
