Supreme Court of India has asked the Central Government to file before it an appropriate affidavit of the competent authority to suggest the ways and means to curb child pornography. The bench comprising of Justice Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirti Singh observed:
The innocent children cannot be made prey to these kind of painful situations, and a nation, by no means, can afford to carry any kind of experiment with its children in the name of liberty and freedom of expression. When we say nation, we mean each member of the collective.
Supreme Court also allowed the Supreme Court Women Lawyers Association to get itself impleaded in the matter. The matter has been adjourned to 28 March 2016.
