Delhi High Court to hear plea against Netflix’s ‘Sacred Games’ for allegedly defaming Rajiv Gandhi

The plea will be heard on July 12.

A plea was filed in the Delhi High Court on July 11 seeking removal of certain scenes from the Netflix series Sacred Games, claiming that its content was derogatory to former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

The plea, which alleged that certain scenes and dialogues in the show defamed the former Prime Minister, was mentioned earlier in the day before a bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar, which allowed it to be listed later in the afternoon. When the matter came up for hearing, the Justice Mittal recused herself without giving any reason. The plea will now be heard by a different bench on July 12.
