Who are pedophile hunters? Know all about them

Pedophilia is a major and rampant crime in most countries. The import of the crime and the viciousness of the perpetrators are accentuated by the fact that the victims are children who do not even realize that they are being violated physically and mentally. In the latest ensnarement by 'pedophile hunters,' a Keralite bank employee in the UK, waiting to have sex with an underage girl, was arrested by the police. This was after a 'systematic chat up' the group had with the accused.

All about the 'hunters'

• Pedophilia hunters work on social media platforms and apps

• There are many other groups too
