The Centre told the Supreme Court that it is taking steps to deal with the issue of child pornography in its entirety. Around 3,500 websites hosting such content has been blocked last month.
The government has asked the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to consider installation of jammers in schools to block access to child pornographic content.
Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand told the bench, also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and M M Shantanagoudar that it is not possible to install jammers in school buses.
“Jammers in school buses are not possible,” Mr Anand said, adding, “government has asked the CBSE to consider whether jammers can be installed in schools to curb access to such websites.”
