The Delhi High Court on Monday said that it will hear on November 14 a plea for the removal of vulgar and sexually explicit content from over-the-top media services including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and others.

The petition, filed by an NGO named Justice for Rights through advocate Harpreet S. Hora, seeks a law or guidelines for regulating the contents available on online platforms.
