The police today took 30 activists of Kalinga Sena into preventive custody, apprehending trouble by the local outfit on the occasion of Valentine's Day.
The outfit yesterday threatened to raid parks and malls in the city to stop couples from celebrating Valentines Day, police said.
"They were taken into custody and detained as a preventive measure," Commissioner of Police (CP) of Bhubaneswar Y B Khurania said.
Strict action will be taken against those who take the law into their hands, Khurania said.
Jayadev Vatika, a major recreation centre near Khandagiri here, remained closed today, he said.
People preferred visiting shopping malls, the officer said.
"We strongly oppose the immoral activities of young boys and girls on the occasion," he said.
