Three days after an FIR was filed against a Bengaluru based company run by the family of IAS officer Kapil Mohan for possessing child pornography, Karnataka State Commission for the Protection of Child Rights chairperson Dr. Kripa Alva  has registered a suo-moto case against the officer. 

KSCPCR has issued summons under commission for protection for child rights act – 2005 section 14(1)(a) to  IAS Officer Kapil Mohan on finding child pornography materials from a flat owned by the company for the explanation.  

The commission has also asked for the inquiry report from the DCP North.

Kapil is the Principal Secretary to the Department of Youth Empowerment & Sports.

Lokayukta police, during their investigation discovered that a hard drive seized from flat owned by the IAS officer's family firm PSK Finance, contained child porn.They later handed over the hard drive to the local police. Initial investigation has suggested that the hard disk belonged to the IAS officer as many of his documents were on it.

An FIR was registered at the Yeshwantpur police station under section 67 and 66 E of the IT act. Sources in the Lokayukta police told The News Minute that the FIR under these sections took sometime as the hard disk had been sent for forensic analysis. "It was password locked and it took sometime for the FSL reports to come."

According to police sources, there were seven adult pornographic films and one child pornographic movie on the disk.

There are however other reports that indicate that there were hundreds of child pornographic videos with Caucasian children, but TNM could not verify it.
