Friday prayers passed off peacefully in Uttar Pradesh amid tight security arrangements put in place after last week's violence by anti-citizenship law protesters. According to Uttar Pradesh Director General of Police OP Singh, no report of any untoward incident was reported from anywhere in the state. The state was placed under a thick security cover with the deployment of central paramilitary forces in sensitive areas. Internet services were suspended in many places to check rumour-mongering. Drones were also used to keep a vigil, particularly in areas where violence had broken out last week after Friday prayers.
