The court sought a response from the over-the-top platform and the makers of the show.
The notice was issued on a petition by SK Kumar, a resident of the Mirzapur district, reported NDTV.
The petitioner accused the makers of ”maligning the image of Uttar Pradesh”. Kumar said Mirzapur has been depicted ”as a den of terror and illegal activities”.
Meanwhile, FIRs have been registered against Tandav makers, the cast, and Amazon Prime Video alleging that the web series has shown the UP police in a bad light and has also hurt the religious sentiments.
