DEHRADUN: Members of Bajrang Dal here are planning to shoot videos of couples indulging in ‘obscene activities’ in public on Valentine’s Day to ensure that nothing ‘unethical’ happens in the name of celebration. They will also shoot videos of stalkers and harassers and submit it to police.
The outfit claimed that the move is to counter harassment allegations against its members. According to Vikas Verma, convenor of Dehradun unit, 250 activists would be deployed across the city – outside women’s colleges, parks and malls – to shoot videos of couples engaged in ‘intimate activities’ in public and harassers. They would then submit the videos as evidence to police so that they can initiate appropriate action.
Verma said “When we approach police, people deny what we allege and instead claim that we harassed them. Hence, we will make videos and submit it as evidence. We will not harass random couples but only those who engage in obscenity in public,”.He further added, “We will blur faces in the videos or shoot only legs so that such clips are not misused by anyone.”
Speaking to, SP (city) Shweta Chaubey said that they would not allow anybody to harass couples or shoot intimate videos. She said “We have formed police teams who will be present at public places on Valentine’s Day to maintain law and order. We will not allow any kind of moral policing by Bajrang Dal or anybody. They will have to face the music if they harass couples,”.
