Allahabad High Court stays arrest of Mirzapur makers Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani.


The Allahabad High Court on Friday stayed the arrest of producers of Mirzapur web series — Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani — in connection with a first information report that accused them of improper and indecent portrayal of the town Mirzapur and outraging religious belief.

However, a division bench of justices Manoj Kumar Gupta and Subhash Chand directed the petitioners to offer full cooperation in the investigation while granting the relief.

Hearing a writ petition filed by Akhtar and Sidhwani, the court issued notice to the Uttar Pradesh government and complainant seeking their replies and listed the case in the first week of March.
