New Delhi:

A showroom of popular jewellery brand Tanishq in Gujarat's Kutch district had received threats, the police said today, amid a row over an advertisement that has been withdrawn after vicious trolling on social media. "Some people had informed the store the ad was not in good taste and had hurt sentiments, and some threat calls had been received.

The police have been regularly patrolling the area. No rioting, protest or attack took place," a police officer said, denying reports that the store was attacked. On Monday night, Tanishq's Gandhidham store, about 310 km from state capital Gandhinagar, was targeted over the ad. "On October 12, two people came to Tanishq store in Gandhidham and demanded to put up an apology in Gujarati. The shop owner had fulfilled the demand but he was getting threat calls. The news about the store being attacked is false," Mayur Patil, a police officer, told news agency ANI.
