Netflix’s web series has been mired in Bombay Begums controversy. The series, released on the occasion of International Women’s Day, has been accused of depicting children in an inappropriate manner.

The NCPCR is the highest body for the protection of child rights. NCPCR has sent a notice to Netflix to stop the streaming of the web series. The NCPCR has asked the OTT platform Netflix to submit a detailed report within 24 hours. The Commission says that if they do not do so, they will be forced to initiate appropriate legal action.
This was said in the complaint
The Commission has sent a notice to Netflix on the basis of a complaint. It was alleged in the complaint that in this series, minors have been shown to have casual sex and consuming drugs. The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, while objecting to the alleged inappropriate portrayal of children in the series, said that such content will not only affect the minds of the youth, but it can also lead to abuse and exploitation of children.
The commission said in its notice, “Netflix should take extra care in relation to children or when streaming any content for children. You are ordered to watch the matter and immediately stop streaming of this series. And a detailed report to be submitted within 24 hours.
