Police detained a man, in his 20’s, suspected of uploading obscene photos of children on social media.

The man was nabbed in his house at 9.50am at Jinjang Utara, Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Amar Singh Ishar Singh said police had received information about child exploitation activities on social networking sites from the Taiwan police.

“Obscene photos of children were believed to have been uploaded in Malaysia based on the IP address of a computer,” he said.

Bernama reported that investigations found the IP address was registered under the name of a local man believed to have shared obscene images of children on the Internet.

Police also seized various items including a mobile phone, a laptop, a modem, a CPU (central processing unit) and a passport from the man which were sent to the Forensic Department for analysis.

The case was being investigated under Section 292 of the Penal Code for possessing or spreading obscene items.
