BENGALURU:The city police have made elaborate security arrangement in and around the city on the occasion of Valentine’s Day.

City police commissioner M N Reddi stated that the public can celebrate Valentines Day without any fear and there is no information of any obstruction from any organisation or individuals. If anybody objects or obstructs to the celebrations, the police will take stringent action and initiate legal proceedings against them, he added.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Alok Kumar told Express that all policemen will keep an eye on those who try to obstruct celebrations. “Security arrangements are specially made on MG Road, Brigade Road, Commercial Street, parks, malls and other entertainment zones, he said.

Meanwhile Sri Rama Senachief Pramod Muthalik, who has been opposing Valentine’s Day celebrations, said, “We are creating awareness about the kind of love that has the blessings of the couple’s parents, instead of celebrating Valentine’s Day. The Sene has no resources to motivate the youths who wait to celebrate this day.”
