India alerts 40 countries about pedophiles in busted WhatsApp child-porn racket

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) — India's equivalent of the FBI in the US — had busted this racket late last month and arrested five administrators of the group, including the man believed to be the mastermind of the ring.

Meanwhile, the laptops, tablets and mobile phones of the five accused who have been arrested in connection with the case are being probed for further information.

The CBI said February 22 that it had busted this racket by investigating a WhatsApp group for three months.

Searches at their homes had "led to the recovery of mobile phones, tablets and laptops containing the alleged incriminating material depicting children in obscene, indecent and sexually explicit acts," the CBI had said February 22 in a statement.
