The CSAM or the child sex abuse material in his smartphone made him be arrested now under the POCSO or protection of child and sex offense act.

How police found that porn viewer?


The police confirm that he has visited more than 500 IP addresses of child porn sites and also downloaded many of them.  If proved of charges, he may have to spend a minimum of the next five years in prison.
