Hyderabad: City police commissioner Anjani Kumar said that in view of the upcoming Supreme court verdict on Ayodhya land dispute case, vigil has been stepped up in communally sensitive areas. “Community elders have been taken into confidence. Youngsters in the city do not want communal tension. We are keeping a watch on select areas to prevent any untoward incident,” Kumar said.
Apart from Old City, security was beefed up at Nirmal, Bodhan, Bhainsa, Nizamabad, Karimnagar, Jagtial, Narayanpet and Nalgonda. “Through community elders we have sent a message to people to not break the law,” said a senior police official.
