New Delhi : The Central Bureau of Investigation has booked seven persons for allegedly being part of international WhatsApp groups in which child porn images were being shared, officials said on Monday.

It emerged during the investigation that he was part of 29 WhatsApp groups where child porn was being shared.

These WhatsApp groups have seven Indian mobile numbers too, they said. All seven have been booked by the agency, the officials said.
