Investigations started in Germany in September 2009, when German Police tracked the IP address to India in respect of some Child Pornography matter. And the Police alerted the Interpol, which through CBI, forwarded the matter to Mumbai Police.
After completing the investigations, the Cyber Crime Investigation Cell raided the flat of the 42 year old lieutenant last week, who was caught red handed, while downloading porn clippings.
