Kunal Kamra Surat show put off over threat of disruption

Speaking to The Indian Express, Mahidharpura Police Inspector P A Arya claimed that the organisers had not taken police permission to host the show, “The programme was on Saturday and there was some problem between those setting up the sound system for the show organisers and some of local youths. “Yesterday, when we were setting up equipment, some people came around 7 pm and began taking away our instruments and our sound system and said they would throw tomatoes and eggs at Kamra and would not allow him to perform,” Tisekar said. The issue was later sorted out through mutual understanding,” Arya claimed, adding, “The organisers had booked the hall online and not taken police permission for the show.” He also claimed that “the standup comedian artist did not come.”
