Hyderabad: Security arrangements in place ahead of protests for Palestine

Hyderabad: Tight security arrangements are being made across the city against the backdrop of worldwide protests condemning Israel’s brutal action in Palestine.

Several hundred people were killed in Israel’s bombardment in Gaza since the conflict began after an attack on Israel-occupied territories by Hamas early this month. In Hyderabad, special prayers and meetings have been planned for three days from Friday.

At Jamia Masjid Darul Shifa, Qunoot-e-Nazila prayers will be conducted after Namaz e Juma. A huge contingent of police is deployed near the Darulshifa grounds. Similar programs are planned at different places.

On Monday a protest meeting is planned by the AIMIM party at Darussslam grounds. The police on their part are not taking any chances.

The Task Force, Armed Reserve, Mounted Police, Tear Gas units and local police are posted around Charminar. The City Rapid Action Force is being deployed at Charminar to control any riot situation. Senior police officials are supervising the security arrangements.
