Six arrested in Valentine's day protests

Six people in India have been arrested for attacking couples celebarting Valentine's day.

Three couples were attacked by members of a hard-line Hindu group who cut off their hair.

It happened near the Taj Mahal - India's white-marble monument to love.

A separate group vandalised a shop selling Valentine's cards and raided a restaurant looking for romantic couples in the Indian portion of Kashmir.

Public displays of love are frowned upon by the older generation in India and kissing or holding hands are social taboos.
