A day after Hindustan Times reported that an event on the lines of Spain’s La Tomatina festival was planned for Saturday, it looks like the event won’t be held after all.

The festival was to be held at Daffodils, Tivoli, Chhatarpur on Saturday. On Friday, the event’s Facebook invite was removed and the organizers’ phones were off.

“The organizers did not ask for and we did not give permission for the event,” said Chhaya Sharma, DCP (South).

Health activists had criticised the event as it had promised “free and unlimited cigarettes” and “hookahs.” Also, the traffic police will conduct a drive against drunken driving near the farm house on Saturday.
