A Mangaluru-based techie has lodged a complaint at the Mangaluru city police against micro-blogging site Twitter for making pornographic material openly available. This was after the complainant, Santosh Kumar Sumantha, came across two boys who were barely 12 years old, discussing and sharing porn pictures.

He has brought to the notice of Mangaluru city police that there are a lot of child pornography pictures and animal sex movies available on Twitter.

According to Banglore Mirror, Santhosh, who works for Cryptosecurephones Mobile Technologies said, “About a week ago, it was very disturbing when I overheard a group of young boys, 10-12 years old, openly sharing porn pictures. Since we have a moral responsibility towards the security of our children, I took some leads from their conversation and conducted some R&D on Twitter. I was shocked to see contents ranging from animal sex to child pornography available. This will have a physiological impact on the kids.”

Worried about the impact of such uncensored content freely available on the internet, on children at such a young age, he said, “What was shocking is that I heard a comment from one on a picture which took me by surprise: `Girls are meant for this!' This is what boys are saying when they are only 10 to 12 years old. I have a girl child, how would I feel when someone told me that my princess is meant for this?”

“Hence I collected all evidence and raised a complaint on www.mangalorecitypolice.com. Within one hour, I went to the police station to lodge a written complaint. I first went to the cyber crime cell in the Commissioner's Office, but nobody attended for four hours,” he said.

According to the newspaper report, since there was no response from cyber crime cell officials, Santhosh went to the Mangaluru South Police Station and waited for three hours. He said nobody wanted to see the pictures.

He approached Prof. Hilda from Prajna Counselling Centre as well as Padi Child Line. Prof. Hilda found that about 150 people sharing child porn content have been identified.

An FIR would be filed under the IT and Pocso Act, followed by a notice to Twitter asking them to justify these pictures.

While DCP Law and Order Shantharaju said that an inquiry is on, Mangaluru South police said that Sumanth was yet to meet them, according to the report.
