Kerala High Court cautiously expressed that “Watching pornography may not be an offence. But if minor children start to watch porn videos, which are now accessible in all mobile phones, there will be far reaching consequences.”
A quick legal roundup to cover important stories from all High Courts this week.
Bombay High Court pointed out the personal interaction with the victim and her statements confirmed consensual relationship with the accused, but the rigors of POCSO Act did not permit quashing of proceedings because any kind of sexual indulgence with a minor fell within the ambit of Sections 4 and 6 of POCSO Act.
The Complainant had filed a second FIR against the accused just after the parties had arrived at a settlement before the Court and the first FIR against the accused was quashed.
