In a new initiative, the Uttar Pradesh Police will keep vigil over those users in the state who watch pornographic content online. Those who are found watching such content will be warned and their digital data will be taken into consideration by the police.

The initiative has been started under the UP Police’s 1090 service. Under this, a police team will monitor those who watch porn on the internet and will also keep data on who sees what and how much. As per a mechanism established by the police team, anyone who goes to a pornographic website will be shown a pop-up alert on the website by the 1090 service of UP Police.

The message will alert the user that their data is being recorded by the police and are under vigilance. Along with this, 1090 will also run a campaign digitally through social media sites Instagram and Facebook to make people aware of the service. “The aim is to monitor the adolescents who are highly vulnerable to such content affecting their mind and behaviour,” said an official.

Watching porn increases crimes against women, says top cop: Speaking to India Today, ADG Neera Rawat said that the scheme was first run in six districts of UP as a pilot project and it has got a good response.

“Now this will be applied in the entire state. UP has about 11.6 crore internet users. Our motive is to sensitise all those youngsters who repeatedly watch pornographic content, which is a possible cause behind increasing crimes against women,” she said.
