POCSO cannot be invoked for raping adult with child-like brain: Supreme Court 21.7.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The stringent POCSO Act to deal with sexual offences against minors cannot be invoked to prosecute a man for raping a mentally-challenged adult victim having an under-developed brain like a child, the Supreme Court today ruled. The apex court said that according to Section 2 (d) of the POCSO Act, the term "age" cannot include "mental" age as the intent of the Parliament was to focus on children, i.e persons who are physically under the age of 18 years. Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act 2012 deals with the sexual offences against those below 18 years of age. "On a reading of the POCSO Act, it is clear to us that it is gender neutral. In such a situation, to include the perception of mental competence of a victim or mental retardation as a factor will really tantamount to causing violence to the legislation by incorporating a certain words to the definition. "By saying 'age' would cover 'mental age' has the potential to create immense anomalous situations without there being any ...

Hefty fees for child abuse portal resource leaves ISPs in trouble 10.7.2017 DNA: Money
To curb child sex abuse content on websites, an inter-ministerial committee of the Ministry of Women and Child Development (WCD) and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) had issued an order in May, asking service providers to adopt the resources of the Internet Watch Foundation to curb abuse content online. ISPs were to comply by July 31. However, as the deadline approaches, what is creating a problem for the ISPs is the exorbitant fees that the IWF charges annually. The IWF maintains a global list of websites and URLs which contain child sex abuse material. But a subscribing ISP will have to pay anywhere between £75,000 to £90,000 per year to avail the list of URLs. The order passed under section 79(2)(c) of the Information Technology Act 2000, said that the directive was an "immediate interim" arrangement till a central database is created in India. The Internet Service Providers Association of India (ISPAI) has already sent a letter to MEITY in this regard but to no avail. ...
