Rapid Action Force, Quick Reaction Force, and Hyderabad Task Force deployed in the high-risk areas. East Zone & South Zone police are on high alert.

The police are keeping a close watch in the wake of the special prayer (Jumma Prayer) at the Mecca Masjid in the afternoon. 

Police personnel are deployed near all important mosques in the city - Falaknama, Chandrayangutta, Aliyabad, Shalibanda, Mogalpura, Hussain Alam, Pattar Gaddi, Madina, Darusifa, Dabbirpura, Murighi Chowk, Mirala Mandi and other areas.

All India Majlis e Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi urged the public to ensure peace prevails in the city on Friday.
