SECURITY ARRANGEMENTS have been beefed up in all cities of the State on Valentines Day in view of the threat by Bajrang Dal activists not to allow young couples to celebrate the day at public places.
Superintendents of police of all districts have been instructed to take all possible steps and not allow anyone to take the law in their hands under any circumstances. The SPs have been directed to ensure legal action against unsocial elements trying to harass people.
Meanwhile, Bajrang Dal activists in Bhopal took out a rally today to send a clear message to young couples. Bajrang Dal activists claimed that squads would be on alert and move around town to identify couples who behave inappropriately.
Asserting that no act that sullies Indian culture and traditions would be tolerated, Bajrang Dal has threatened that any such couple found would be handed over to their guardians.
Bajrang Dal mahanagar branch convener Devendra Rawat said 17 squads of bajrangis had been formed to keep an eye on various parts of the State Capital. He added young couples found at public places would be handed over to their parents.
Meanwhile, according to police, security at hotels, parks, restaurants and other public places would be effective. Anyone trying to create trouble or harass people in any way would be booked and legal action would be initiated against that person. Bhopal SP A K Singh emphasised that proper security would be provided at all public places and police would prevent any unsocial elements from trying to bother people.
