    National child rights body NCPCR has asked Netflix to stop streaming “Bombay Begums” citing what it calls the “inappropriate portrayal” of children in the web series.

    In a notice to Netflix on Thursday, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) asked the OTT platform to furnish a detailed action report within 24 hours, failing which it would be “constrained to initiate appropriate legal action”.

    Objecting to the alleged inappropriate portrayal of children in the series, the commission said such content could “pollute young minds” and could also result in abuse and exploitation of children.

    The commission took action based on a complaint which alleged that the series normalises minors indulging in casual sex and drug abuse.

    “Netflix should take extra precaution while streaming any content in respect of the children or for the children and shall also refrain from getting into such things,” the commission said in its notice.

    “Bombay Begums” delves into the lives of five women who all want different things in life.
