NEW DELHI: An Indian student who was allegedly running an international child porn network has been arrested, international media reports say.
India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raided a house in the city of Kannuaj in northern Uttar Pradesh state and arrested the 20-year-old administrator of a WhatsApp group.
According to AFP, the group run by the student had more than 115 members from at least 18 countries, including the United States, Mexico, Kenya, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China and New Zealand.
Four other local suspects have been identified and are being pursued by authorities.
“We arrested the administrator of the WhatsApp group and recovered computer hardware and mobile phones used to upload and store the videos and pictures,” a CBI official told AFP.
