'Tandav' row: SC refuses protection from arrest to makers & actors

Jan 27, 2021 16:10 IST

The directors and actors of web series 'Tandav', and head of Amazon Prime India Aparna Purohit have failed to get protection from the arrest.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday expressed its disinclination to pass any direction to stay the FIRs or arrest saying 'You cannot play the role of character that hurts the sentiments of a community'. 

The top court said that the petitioners should go to the high courts to seek quashing of these cases.

The web series is facing criminal cases for hurting religious sentiments and insulting religion punishable under Sections 153A and 295 of Indian Penal Code (IPC).
