Acting as an administrator Somya had advertised through Facebook for paid membership of a closed Line group that shared the images.

The case came to light after help from the California based Operation Underground Railroad that assists governments in cases of human trafficking and sex trafficking with a special focus on children.

The DSI reminded the public that possessing indecent images or videos of children is a criminal offence. They called for the public to contact them on their free nationwide hotline – 1202 – with leads.
