The Bengaluru police have formally denied permission for Sunny Leone's New year show.

The police stated that they are not in a position to give special attention to the event during the New Year celebrations.

S Girish, Bengaluru North East Deputy Commissioner of police said, "Since the police have to maintain law and order throughout the city, including for huge gatherings on Mahatma Gandhi and Brigade roads, special attention cannot be given to 'Sunny Nights' at Manyata Tech Park on December 31." 

The permission for the event was pending with the Bengaluru Police.
