Moral Police on Valentine Day to land in trouble: Delhi Police



New Delhi: Couples celebrating Valentine's Day this Sunday need not worry about 'moral police' going after them in the city.

Delhi Police will deploy adequate number of police personnel on streets to ensure that the celebrations go without any trouble.

"We are not for moral policing in the city. We will not allow anyone to take law in their hands. Strict action will be taken against troublemakers on Valentine's Day," a senior police official said.

Policemen will be on streets to ensure that there is no violence and harassment of couples on Sunday, the official said.

Last year, the Valentine's Day celebrations were peaceful here with police taking adequate steps.

Four people were kept under preventive arrest on February 14 last year while another 48 were kept under detention for holding anti-Valentine's Day protests.
