A mother of three minor children has moved the Bombay High Court seeking a ban on popular mobile video-sharing app, TikTok.

The Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by one Heena Darvesh from Mumbai also seeks a direction to the government to provide records of deaths due to accidents caused by the use of TikTok.

The petitioner has claimed that the TikTok app is affecting young people, especially children, by causing addiction issues leading to degraded mental health.
