SRINAGAR: Ten youths were arrested on charges of vitiating peaceful atmosphere outside the historic Jamia Masjid here during the congregational payers a day earlier, police said on Saturday.

"10 Hooligans arrested for trying to vitiate peaceful atmosphere outside Jamia Masjid Yesterday after Friday prayers. They shall be booked under relevant section of law," Srinagar Police wrote in a post on X.

Police urged the public not to indulge in such acts.
