Hyderabad: Following protests by women’s and some right-wing groups, police in Visakhapatnam yesterday stopped the Kingfisher Fashion Week.
While women and students demanded a halt to the event to stop indecent portrayal of women, some right-wing groups protested the display of Hindu gods on the clothes of a few models.
The three-day event was stopped by police on the second day when Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) lodged a complaint that the dress of a model hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus. 
A police officer said they had booked a case against the organisers and stopped the show. IANS
