With the revelation of the involvement of Aussie schoolgirls in pornographic images shared on an online platform, police have started investigating the whole matter.

Reports have suggested that the officials are trying to identify the girls by visiting around 70 different private and public schools across Australia. The pictures are said to be shared by teenage boys. The web page featured naked photos of teenage girls along with their names. Based on the images, the website visitors were asked to rate the girls.

Officers from New South Wales, Queensland and ACT said that there were huge numbers of education departments that required investigation. “The website appears to be in the format of a message chat forum where you can upload and request photos from various schools or various locations around Australia,” Townsville’s Detective Senior Sergeant David Miles said.

“From our understanding, we have a number of images that have been posted at this stage, a minimum of 70 schools that have been identified around Australia where we have people requesting specific photos to be uploaded.”

Meanwhile, police officers have visited Melbourne’s well-known educational institution St Michael’s Grammar private school for investigation. The students are reportedly involved in the sharing of the porn images of schoolgirls. Victoria police confirmed recently that they had spoken to a bot, 16, who allegedly created a Dropbox to store pictures of schoolgirls from the school at St Kilda’s southeastern suburb of Melbourne.

The education departments of NSW, Tasmania and Queensland said that they were cooperating with the police in their investigation. Miles said that they were investigating the matter based on information gathered through the website featuring those images.

“First and foremost, if we identify any children, we’ll have to approach the individuals and ascertain the circumstances in which the imagery might have been obtained,” he said as quoted by the ABC. “We then go into a situation where we explore how the image is disseminated, how it was put on the web. Then we look at people committing offences.”
