Press Trust of India  |  Dehradun 

The police carried out a flag march in parts of Haridwar district on Saturday after the Supreme Court's Ayodhya verdict amid a call by Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat to maintain communal amity.

No untoward incident was reported from the state.

"We are a peace loving country and we will have to make every effort to maintain communal amity. I hope all of us will contribute towards this with a positive viewpoint," he said, asking people to not pay heed to rumours.

Elaborate security arrangements were made in the state ahead of the judgement in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case, Rawat said.

According to police, the flag march to maintain peace was carried out in Jwalapur area of Haridwar, which has a mixed population of Hindus and Muslims. District Magistrate Deependra Kumar Chaudhry and Senior Superintendent of Police Senthil Avoodai Krishna Raj led the march.
