Sharaf Ali arrested for ‘exclusive’ child porn group

KERALA: Rape and violence against women is something that we hear about almost every other day. It’s printed on headlines, it’s shared on social media, it’s almost everywhere.

However,  even with it being talked about so much it isn’t being curtailed. And what’s even worse is when anything this gory and traumatic is happening with a child.

This 24-year-old man, Sharaf Ali from Kozhikode in Kerala allegedly peddled rape videos and nude pictures on an exclusive child porn group.

According to a report by NDTV, Sharaf is an aspiring accountant. And has now been arrested for having multiple groups where he would share videos of little girls getting raped.

One of the videos was that of a four-year-old girl being raped by two men. He even posted nude photos of an eight-year-old girl along with the message “the child didn’t understand anything but enjoyed the moments and pleasure” by her father.

This and more disturbing content was shared on a chat group called ‘Poombatta’. Pornographic videos especially featuring children were shared by the users.

Sharaf is the main accused and has been arrested by the police. He allegedly ran a chat group called ‘Naadan Thoond’ which is an online porn channel translating to ‘Desi Porn’. 

Six others have been identified in the same racket and will be arrested soon according to the police.

Ali also had four groups on Telegram with almost 5,000 followers. Followers could only be added with the permission of the admin. But they could contribute and send videos.

Police suspect that the ‘exclusive’ Malayalis only group, ‘Poombatta’ is at least two years old.

Jaljith Thottolil, a medical transcriptionist, and his friend Binu Phalgunan joined the group after gaining the admin’s trust. They collected evidence, provided details to the police and got the main accused arrested. Thottolil said,

“THEY DEBATED THE TARGET AGE OF THE CHILDREN ON THE GROUP. ONE OF THE MEMBERS SUGGESTED THAT VIDEOS OF CHILDREN BETWEEN ONE AND THREE YEARS OF AGE SHOULD BE FEATURED BECAUSE THEY DO NOT REMEMBER THINGS.”

However, he said that the admin was adamant that children only between the age of 4 and 15 should be featured.
 
Children are innocent and their childhood should be preserved. Instead, these perverts are sharing photos and videos of little girls naked and being raped. It takes a whole different level of disgusting to actually commit a heinous crime like this. Things like this truly make me wonder, where are we headed?
