According to reports, the state government in Madhya Pradesh has blocked 25 porn sites.

Singh's statement comes after the horrific rape and murder of an infant baby girl in Indore on April 19.

Just two days ago, an Indore model took to Twitter to narrate how her skirt was pulled at on a busy street in the city and no one came forward to help her.

On Sunday, following the huge outrage over the gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua and rape of a teenager in Unnao, the Union Cabinet approved the promulgation of an ordinance to allow courts to award death penalty to those convicted of raping children up to 12 years of age.

Many other states are also contemplating bringing in a similar legislation.
