Curfew continued in riot-hit parts of Hyderabad for the fourth day on Friday. Even though the situation remained peaceful, police were on high alert because of Friday prayers.
Police decided not to relax the curfew in all 25 police station areas since they anticipated trouble during Friday prayers. They had requested Muslims to pray in their homes.
