delhi Updated: Feb 09, 2009 06:07 IST

In a bid to prevent Manglore like attack, the Delhi Police is keeping a close vigil on saffron-bands activists and rowdy elements to ensure safety of couples in public places on Valentines Day.

The Delhi unit of National Panthers Party has announced that it would deploy its activists at various parts of the capital to provide protection to love birds celebrating the day.

Our activists, trained in Judo Karate and armed with red chillies would be present to teach a befitting lesson to those obstructing or opposing the Valentine Day, its state president Sanjoy Sachdev said.

The party has also issued a 'beat on sight' order against anyone who is found harassing couples and stopping them from celebrating the festival of love.

It has also set up a control room with a helpline number -- 09313784375 -- in which one can call for assistance. To help such complainants, several mobile teams have been deployed in the city, Sachdev said.

Similarly, Delhi Police Commissioner Y S Dadwal has also taken a tough stand against the moral policing by outfits like Shiv Sena and Bajrang Dal in the city.
