In a letter to Netflix, the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) requested the US transmission company to investigate the matter and present a report within 24 hours or have an additional action, According to the Reuters internal news agency.
NCPPR’s noque cited a tweet in which a user opposed a scene of ‘children who take cocaine’.
The Commission said that the web series based on this content not only contaminated the minds of children, but could also lead to greater abuse and exploitation of children.
However, when the internal news agency contacted Netflix, there was no response.
The Web series ‘Bombay Begums’ was launched this week about 5 women from different walks of life that try to advance in Mumbai Modern, which was previously called Bombay.
The transmission platforms of Netflix and Amazon Prime have been the issue of controversy about pornography or insulting religious feelings.
Last year, a member of the Youth Wing of India’s ruling party housed a complaint against the police against Netflix to object to some scenes of “adequate child”.
Amazon Prime recently faced the controversy to insult religious feelings on the web series.
