Can't click Allow button in permission dialog in Android using Appium

I am unable to tap on Deny or Allow buttons on the permissions dialog in Android using Appium+Java. Do I need to add any capabilities before going to tap on those buttons?
Below is the code:

DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
capabilities.setCapability("platformName", "Android");
capabilities.setCapability("deviceName", "ASUS_Z00LD");
capabilities.setCapability("platformVersion", "6.0");
capabilities.setCapability("app","<AppPath>");
capabilities.setCapability("browserName", "");
AndroidDriver<MobileElement> driver = new AndroidDriver<MobileElement>(new URL("http://127.0.0.1:4723/wd/hub"), capabilities);
Thread.sleep(10000);
driver.findElement(MobileBy.id("permission_allow_button")).click();


Below is error in Eclipse console:

org.openqa.selenium.NoSuchElementException: An element could not be located on the page using the given search parameters. (WARNING: The server did not provide any stacktrace information)


Below is the Appium log:

Anyone's help to overcome this would be appreciated?

With the below snippet I am able to click on all the allow buttons to get the permissions.

while (driver.findElements(MobileBy.xpath("//*[@class='android.widget.Button'][2]")).size()>0) {
    driver.findElement(MobileBy.xpath("//*[@class='android.widget.Button'][2]")).click();
}
