A plea was filed against Netflix Series Sacred Games in Delhi High Court on Wednesday seeking removal of scenes, which are allegedly derogatory to former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
The plea was mentioned earlier in the day before a bench comprising of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar. The bench allowed the plea to be listed for a hearing in the afternoon. However, when the matter came up for the hearing, the Chief Justice recused herself from hearing the plea without any reason. The plea will now be heard by a different bench on July 12.
The petition filed through advocate Shashank Garg states that Sacred Games starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Saif Ali Khan ?incorrectly depicts historical events of the country like Bofors case, Shah Bano case, Babri Masjid case and communal riots. The plea seeks directions to Netflix Entertainment, Phantom Films Production and the Centre to ensure complete removal of allegedly offensive and derogatory remarks made directly or indirectly against former PM Rajiv Gandhi and his family.
Netflix Series Sacred Games, which is based on Vikram Chandras 2006 thriller novel of the same name, was made available for streaming on Netflix on July 6, 2018. The show, series directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane, is already getting rave reviews from critics and audience at large. Many among the audience have compared the show to the popular and highly rated Netflix series Narcos based on the life of Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar and the drug mafia in Columbia.

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’
The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Anil Deshmukh granted permission to travel outside Mumbai
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur.
The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency.
“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.
The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”
