Bengaluru, April 19: The Bengaluru police recently arrested a 37-year-old security guard for allegedly downloading and sharing child pornography on his mobile phone. The accused has been identified as Noor Islam Choudhary. Police officials said Noor is from Assam and works with a private firm on Haines Road in east Bengaluru.

The accused has been arrested on charges of downloading child pornography. According to a report in the Times of India, Noor was traced and arrested based on a complaint filed by the CID. Cops said that internet service providers tipped off officials of the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (NCME) about Noor downloading child pornography. Bengaluru Shocker: Man Stabs Ex-Girlfriend to Death, Killed Minutes Later by Victim’s Mother.

"A bachelor, Choudhary, had downloaded many such videos and pictures and shared some of them," a police officer said. During the probe, the police found that Choudhary was working and staying on Haines Road.
