New Delhi, Apr 25: In a major development over the raging debate on the cheerleaders in DLF Indian Premier League (IPL) matches, Navi Mumbai Police chief has refused to ban them.
The Police official said that no cheerleader can be arrested. However, he made it clear that the organisers will be booked if the cheerleaders are obscenely dressed.
The Navi Mumbai police chief also said that the dancers will not be allowed to perform in 'obscene dress'.
On Thursday, the Maharashtra government had said that it was considering a ban on cheerleaders in the DLF IPL matches in Mumbai.
The objection on the cheerleaders was raised in the State Legislative Council by Maharashtra BJP president Nitin Gadkari, who is also a member of the House. Gadkari said it was degrading to women and should be banned.
