New Delhi (Sputnik): A delay in the arrest of senior Indian journalist Deepak Chaurasia has created an uproar on social media as netizens questioned the efficiency of the police for being slow despite the scribe being booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

Social media users have come out in support of a minor girl, whom they named “Choti Damini”, after the journalist aired an MMS featuring her to defame Asaram Bapu, a self-styled religious guru who has been sentenced to life in prison for raping a 16-year-old.

Chaurasia’s act courted a huge controversy with 58.3k followers using the hashtag  #IndiaAgainstDeepakChaurasia on Twitter.

The (POCSO) Act was enacted to provide a robust legal framework for the protection of children from offences of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and pornography while safeguarding the interest of the child at every stage of the judicial process.
