Supreme Court refuses ‘Tandav’ team protection from arrest
The makers and an actor of the Amazon Prime web series “Tandav”, who appealed for protection against arrest, failed to get any relief from the Supreme Court on Wednesday. At least three cases have been lodged in Uttar Pradesh against the makers of the series, alleging inappropriate depiction of UP Police personnel and deities, and adverse portrayal of a character playing the role of prime minister. Similar cases have been lodged in other states including Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Bihar, Delhi, and Chandigarh. The apex court directed the producers of the web series to approach the high court for bail.
