Though Iyan Karthikeyan reports that visiting a website which contains Child pornogrpahy is also a crime. “In October month, CBI took action against those who encouraged child pornography through Whatsapp. They derived an original complete list of people who encouraged it in the prominent cities of India and appropriate actions were taken against them” he added.
