We will make representations to municipal commissioner, against the agency who had got license of putting hoardings at different places and take legal actions against them.”

Surat Commissioner of Police Satish Sharma said to Indian Express, “We have brought such hoardings down, as the advertisement was of condoms and it should not be linked up with the religious festivals and even photo of Sunny Leone was semi-nude. We have received complaints from the public and we brought down the hoardings.” The hoardings were fixed in four different locations like Udhna, Athwalines, Varachha and Majuragate area in Surat
