Explaining further behind the reason of the ban, Gupta added the Government of India action against the Pakistan-based Vidly TV is based on the a web-series called ‘Sevak: The Confessions’. It is reportedly considered detrimental to national security, sovereignty, and integrity of India, defence of India, security of India, and public order in the country.

Furthermore, he informed that action followed the assessment of the provocative and wholly untrue web-series ‘Sevak’, which was sponsored by Paksitan’s info ops apparatus. First of 3 episode series was released on 26.11.2022, anniversary of Pakistani terror attacks on Mumbai in 2008.
