Mumbai, May 12: The Indian Army officer Jagmohan Balbir Singh, who was arrested on May 6 on the charges of circulating child pornography on the internet, faces similar charges in Germany.

A case has been registered against 42-year-old Singh in Germany. However, a senior police official on Wednesday, May 12 ruled out the possibility of extraditing the accused to Germany.

"Singh will not be extradited to Germany. Police in that country have also registered a case against the accused for child pornography. They would close the case now as Singh has been arrested here in connection with the crime and he cannot be tried and punished twice for the same offence," Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy said, adding that the Indian police will be sending their German counterparts a detailed report on the case.

The Mumbai Cyber Crime Cell arrested the Lieutenant Colonel from his south Mumbai house for allegedly uploading obscene photographs and video clips involving children on the internet.

The German police came across the obscene contents being uploaded on a child pornography site from Mumbai in 2009.
