Hyderabad: Situation in the communally sensitive city continued to remain calm and peaceful a day after the Allahabad High Court verdict in the Ayodhya title suits case, but authorities said precautionary measures will continue for some more days.

Shopkeepers were on Friday asked to shut down their shops for about two hours before the start of afternoon prayers in some sensitive localities of the city, police said.
There was no report of any untoward incident. The situation is totally peaceful, City Police Commissioner A K Khan told reporters here.

However, security drill, particularly in sensitive areas of the city, would continue for some more days, he said. Prohibitory orders under section 144 of CrPC will also be
in force till October 4 to maintain public order, peace and tranquillity, he added.
As part of precautionary measures, pillon-riding has been prohibited between 9pm to 6am for a week. However, this restriction is not applicable to women and those below 12
years, police said.
