While the VHP claimed that it only asked the couples to leave the spot and did not attack anyone, the Sabarmati Riverfront police reportedly detained 10 members of the group. "If couples have the right to celebrate Valentine's Day, we have the right to save our culture", they had said.

Meanwhile, there were reports from Ahmedabad where Bajrang Dal members have been allegedly harassed couples at Sabarmati riverfront.

Also, Bajrang Dal's activists took out a rally against the celebration of Valentine's Day threatening that no couples should roam around in Maharashtra's Nagpur on Tuesday.

Taking responsibility for the incident, VHP media coordinator for north Gujarat, Hemendra Trivedi, said, "As announced by us, the VHP and Bajrang Dal members today held protests at the riverfront". This most shocking incident was reported from Chennai where Bharat Hindu Front workers got a dog and a donkey married in protest to indicated their opposition to Valentine's Day.
