The plea has been filed by Sujeet Kumar Singh through advocate Binay Kumar Das.

The petitioner specifically objected to the portrayal of a woman hailing from the district having sexual affair with the servant and her father-in-law as well.

“By showing such ridicules and shameless things on the name of a city/ district is the insult of approximately 30 lakh population and rich culture of Mirzapur,” added the plea.

The plea contended that the government should make some guidelines to prohibit bad portrayal of historical and cultural values of a city.

“Mirazapur is a place where the holy river Ganga meets the Vindhya range… The world famous temple Vindhyachal Temple, which is also one of the 108 Shakti Peeth in India, is situated in Mirzapur district,” contended the plea objecting to its portrayal in bad light.
