Hyderabad: Ahead of Ganesh immersion the police officials draped the structures like mosques, dargahs and chilla on the routes of Ganesh procession in the parts of Old City. This was done to avert any possible problematic incident. The mosques in areas like Santosh Nagar, Chandrayangutta, Falaknuma, Shahalibanda, Afzal Gunj, Begum Bazar, Nampally and some other areas, the mosques and dargahs can be seen draped in massive cloth.
