indianpornNEW DELHI – It is unclear if CSI will take the case or whether Interpol has sole jurisdiction – or whether the international community will simply look the other way – but a crime has apparently been committeed – toon porn star murder most foul.

“The woman in question is no martyr or public figure. She is India’s first online comic porn star, banned by the Department of Telecommunication, Ministry of IT and Telecom, for promoting obscenity,” reports the Indian press. “Savita Bhabhi – a curvaceous, sari-clad Indian woman with long, black tresses offset by a line of fiery red vermillion to mark her marriage – was a far cry from the typically prudish Indian housewife, and drew over 60 million users to her online abode every month.”

Apparently, unceremoniously doing away with Bhabhi was the government’s first official use of a new law passed last year that allows officials to block dangerous websites. The law – section 67 of the Information Technology Act – allows the banning of sites that threaten “the sovereignty or integrity of India, defence and security of the state” or that endanger “friendly relations with foreign states.”

Ironically, according to some observers, Savita has been a boon to international relations.

“Our relationships with foreign states couldn’t be friendlier since she went online.” Sevanti Ninan, a journalist who runs thehoot.org, a media commentary site, said.

Others think the government ban is doomed to failure.

“The government ban is about as impotent as Savita Bhabhi’s workaholic, sexually clueless husband, and as her growing legion of fans has discovered, there are ways of getting around the ban by using proxy, anonymiser websites that cover your tracks,” columnist Venkatesan Vembu said.

There are also efforts underway to reverse the ruling regarding Savita’s banishment using India’s freedom of-information laws to uncover who demanded that the site be blacklisted.

In the meantime, hundreds of R.I.P groups sprung up on online, mourning her death.
