The ministry of information technology was questioned or rather inquired by the Supreme Court on Friday to find out whether a mechanism can be created to block objectionable sexual videos, particularly involving children from being uploaded in social media like Facebook and Whatsapp and once uploaded they can be removed or blocked.
The Bench in February had taken suo motu cognisance of a letter written to the former Chief Justice of India H.L. Dattu by Hyderabad-based NGO Prajwala sending a pen drive containing two videos highlighting the crime committed by the gang and seeking appropriate action against the culprits.
Dr Sunita Krishnan (of Prajwala) who appeared submitted before the bench that last month there was a crack down on a website in which over 3,500 children who were victims of child trafficking had shared their experiences.
